As Bolton’s Youth MPs, we have the privilege to be the voice of the young people of Bolton on a local, regional and national level. Back in January we attended the Bolton 2030 Vision conference. Here, representatives from different organisations, businesses and voluntary groups met in the newly renovated Albert Hall to discuss what we wanted Bolton to be like in 13 years’ time and how we can achieve it. One thing was clear, the involvement and participation of young people is essential! A popular idea included more celebration of voluntary work, development in the town centre, and more highlight events like the Food and Drink Festival. After the event, it was clear to see Bolton has a lot of amazing assets and potential. We can’t wait to begin work on creating a better, more aspirational and more inclusive Bolton for all.
