IN reply to Mr Halpin, who wants a dog racing track because there is no leisure in Bolton, may I comment? The libraries in Bolton offer so many services and are so friendly and efficient I could spend all day in just one of them.

Young or old, rich or poor they serve all of us.

The museum and art gallery...I need three weekends to appreciate all their beauty.

And finally, London theatre land hasn’t got a theatre as good as ours.

The Octagon performance I saw this week was truly amazing. Thank you to all the production cast and actors.

Flat caps and cruelty to dogs — we don’t need them in Bolton, thank you.
