We asked each of Bolton's three MPs what their hopes are for Bolton going into 2021.

This is what Mark Logan, Conservative MP for Bolton North East, had to say:

"The C word of last year will linger for some time yet.

"With the vaccine roll-out under way and increasing support coming Bolton’s way in the weeks ahead, I share your optimism that more predictability beckons.

"As we delve into 2021, we can finally begin to focus on other C words to rebuild and celebrate our town:

"Community: I am routinely impressed by the community spirit shown by Boltonians. The selfless actions of so many, has played an integral role in supporting our town through recent hardships.

"It is right that this has been recognised on a national level with MBEs awarded to the founders of Urban Outreach for their community efforts. Long may this volunteering spirit continue all around us.

"Cleaning up: I've been focused on litter picking since day one. I will raise more awareness of the waste and fly-tipping issues within the borough and encourage more people to join our dedicated litter picking groups.

"It’s been excellent to see Bolton News join the campaign to keep Bolton tidy.

"Commerce: Business = prosperity = having the money to invest and buy what we need to reach our full potential. Last year the government provided numerous financial support through various schemes, some examples include:

- The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme

- The Kickstart Scheme

- Business rates relief for many interests

"This year, in order to build back better, I want to see the recovery for local businesses prioritised. We can bring increasing prosperity to Bolton.

"The upcoming budget in March promises to deliver the next phase of the plan to tackle the virus and protect jobs. I will lobby government to secure the best possible package to ensure you get the support and inspiration to emerge from this testing episode.

"Connectivity: I aim for the plans to build a new Metrolink to progress full steam ahead. This will open up a whole host of economic, social and environmental benefits to Boltonians.

"Crime: I will continue to work closely with Bolton police to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour across Bolton North East.

"I want to see GMP draw on government funding and drive positive change here in Bolton. This year our police force will be bolstered, helping to keep our community safe.

"Casework: Above all, it is my duty to support the good people of Bolton North East. Last year I, along with my team, supported over 4,000 casework inquiries.

"And we have some way to go this year to push through the final stages of a succession of once in a century difficulties. I’ll be here for you as and when you need support to get back on your feet."
