Chance to help clean landmark

GRUBBY or rundown landmarks in Bolton could be cleaned up as part of a new campaign to add some sparkle to Bolton.

Residents are being asked to nominate a local landmark, church hall or community centre to have a free professional clean.

Vileda, a cleaning products brand based in Rochdale, is asking residents across Greater Manchester to nominate a local landmark or building which they feel needs a good clean.

The dirtiest or most rundown landmark will receive a full makeover as part of Vileda’s Big UK Clean-Up.

Company spokesman Lindsey Taylor said: “Vileda is extremely proud to be based in the North West and we really wanted to extend our knowledge and expertise of the cleaning industry to the wider community. We know how a little sparkle and shine can make people incredibly proud of their homes, so why not apply this to their local area.”

People can nominate a local building or landmark via the Vileda Facebook page until February 18.

start with the footpaths and get rid of that horrible chewing gum which to all intents and purposes looks like bird droppings. It is disgusting.

May as well sugar coat a dog turd, get Cliff and his labour lefties out and then and only then will Bolton stand any chance of returning to the great town it used to be! To many immigrants and to many high paid council freeloaders have and will continue to ruin what we have left.

You know what its like when you start decorating having done one room you see how shabby the next looks in comparison and so it goes on until you've spent a fortune.
Better to leave the town in the same dilapidated state its been in for the past ten years or so, otherwise the council tax will have to rise.

How about hiring the artist, as featured in today's Daily Fail, who is credited with camouflaging ugly and dirty buildings with art that helps improve teh look of an area - he could have a job with council for at least the next decade!

Vileda, publicity stunt, but see how the BN dressed it up. I think we need a push (geddit?) by jcb to knock half of it down. Start with Bradshawgate and carry on toward bank st, including diamonds ld club and beyond. Then do newport st, from Game to the the train station.
