Family fun day in Deane and the Willows 


On Saturday 22nd February from 11am to 2pm Bolton residents are invited to  take part in a FREE fun filled family event being held at the Willows Centre, Bolton.

The event is being organised by the European Union funded LIFE + Up and Forward Project run by Recycle for Greater Manchester and Bolton Council.

Residents are being encouraged to bring families and friends along to the event to participate in activities to encourage recycling and to engage with one another within the community. Activities will include; face painting, multicultural mask making using recycled objects and recycling games.

Residents will be able to pick up a free recycling activity book for children that has been produced in partnership with the local people and has been created around the ideas they have come up with. Free refreshments will also be provided for all attending.
The event is part of a wider European funded (LIFE+) campaign that aims to help residents throughout Greater Manchester waste less and recycle more.
