Future of Bolton to be discussed at 'vision conference'
THE future of Bolton will be discussed at a “vision conference" today.
The leaders of Bolton’s private, public, faith, voluntary, education and community sector will gather to discuss how they can work together for the benefit of the borough.
More than 200 delegates are expected to attend the event at Bolton College and hear how the council and its partners are working to maintain health services, push forward with regeneration and boost the economy in the face of cuts.
Dave Singleton, chairman-elect of the Vision Partnership, said he was looking forward to the meeting and working with partners across the public, private and community sectors.
He said: “There is no doubt that the past year has been a challenging one for Bolton, due to the difficult economic climate.
“However, I look forward to working with all partners in 2014, to deliver public sector reform at a local level, boost the economy and counter poverty across the borough.”
Speakers include the Mayor of Bolton Cllr Colin Shaw, leader of Bolton Council Cllr Cliff Morris and Sean Harriss, the authority’s chief executive.
The Vision Marketplace will also be open for business, where local partners and organisations can take a stall to display and explain their aims and how they work. Organisations which will be taking a stall include Hoot credit union, the council’s money skills advice team, Bolton College and the University of Bolton.
