Joined this site about a month ago and have just been 'hanging about' to see what happens. Some of the local sites seems quite active but I notice no one has written on the Bolton site for nearly a year now. Does anyone actually log on in this area? I also realised that Bolton is listed under Greater Manchester shock. It would be interesting to know how many people in Bolton, like me, come from Bolton, Lancashire smile. Looking forward to hearing from people in our area.

Hi GrandmaSunshine I'm a Boltonian. Although it is quite a big area now. As Kirstie once described it on Location though it is Sunny Bolton! Nice to hear from you and welcome to the site. smile

Hi Rubylady, must admit I didn't expect a big response but thought there would have been more than one. It has only been one day though, perhaps if I leave it a little longer more will reply. Thanks for the Welcome

Well, you always have me. smile

Hi, I have just joined the site....I am not originally from Bolton but always thought it was Bolton Lancashire!....perhaps thats why there is not so much activity as under Lancashire - Bolton does not show. having a browse around..

Hello ladies
I have been a browser of Gransnet for some time as when I became a grandma my daughter suggested I should become a member. As usual with technology, I joined but haven't really contributed or exchanged too many thoughts. However I live in Bolton, to me Bolton has always been in Lancashire and will always remains so.

Nice to know there are other local grandmas!
