Bolton CVS havd funded the memory bank project which is run by Paul and Rita Gornall in conjunction with the Reminiscence Group of Halliwell History Society. The outcome of the project, which runs from January to March 2019, will be online video blogs in which older Bolton people talk about various history aspects of life in Bolton.
