Bolton Neighbourhood Development Plan

     The Parish Council has decided to await the outcome of the Eden Grove development before updating the plan and arranging repeat consultation.



Bolton Wanderers


Bolton Wanderers is going strong & is ready to launch a "Strollers" section - sociable walks of short distances (about 3 miles) with an equal emphasis on talking and viewing as well as walking.  Open to anyone.  Please contact Jim Sellars for more info:    jimsellars333@btinternet.com   62362 .   See here for more details.  

 Eden Grove

Eden Grove has been vandalised, almost certainly by kids -  broken glass & crockery all over the place.   if anyone has any info, please let me or the police know.



Aerobics and Pilates

Debbie Chambers is now running classes in the Memorial Hall on Wednesday mornings during term time only.  Aerobics is from 9.30 – 10.15 and costs £4.

  Pilates is from 10.15 – 11 and also costs £4.   It’s £6 if you do both.

 Contact Debbie on 07925535586.  




Bolton in Bloom


The theme this year is RHS Campaign Greening Grey

Britain for Wildlife

 Our success is very much the result of collective community effort. It’s not just what the judges see on the day that counts.  Amongst other things, they look at year round activities, evidence of sustainable, nature friendly initiatives that involve different groups of people, and use of recycled products.



Phone Box

The phone box has been removed.


Car parking in the village

The PC has been requested to relay some concerns about poor car parking practices.  The main problems are double parking outside the school at pick up time and parking on pavements, which restricts the passage of buggies and disability scooters.  I know people do this to avoid blocking the road for passing vehicles, but please bear in mind that people do have to pass on the pavement also.  


Bolton Wanderers Walking Group


 The inaugural walk in December (a 9 mile circular in the Great Asby area) attracted 12 walkers and was a great success. Monthly walks are planned.  The walks are a little longer and more challenging than those of the Morland Walking Group.


It is free to join, not a Club where costs and rules apply


To join the Bolton group or for more information visit the Walking Group page or contract
