LIKE many hundreds of people who came to Victoria Square last Saturday, I also took an opportunity to sit down and watch the whole of the reenactment of the Easter story.

The Lord blessed us with a sunny day which was an added bonus to what was to follow for the next couple of hours.

The story was wonderfully acted by so many of the cast, who were brilliant in their own individual roles.

The latter part of the story was gripping and full of emotion that must have touched many hearts in the crowd.

The play was not just useful from a faith and educational point but, for me, much more — by bringing many people together whose lives will be enriched by experiencing such a historical event in our town.

However, the main purpose of this letter is to most sincerely say a real “thank you” to our colleagues from Bolton Christian Community Cohesion, Bolton Council, funders, patrons of the project, volunteers and many others who have worked extremely hard in staging this very memorable play in Bolton.

Through the involvement of our young ambassadors, I had an insight into the efforts of countless individuals who had shown real commitment and dedication in making this a reality for all of us in Bolton.

Many hours of work, many ups and downs and as a team, on the day, all of them pulled together and delivered something very special that can make us all very proud to be associated with this wonderful town and its people.

On behalf of all of us at Bolton Interfaith Council, once again many thanks to each and everyone associated with “Passion for Bolton” project.

Well done and God Bless.
