Greater Manchester’s Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd said: “This is a welcome initiative that brings together health, voluntary organisations and the community to celebrate healthy living and encourage active lifestyles. It was great to see so many families and young people at the event. We all have a responsibility to give our children a healthy start and this event helps provide them with the tools they need to live well.”
Mr Lloyd was speaking after inaugurating the 7th annual Bolton Health Mela which was held at the University of Bolton on Saturday 12 March 2016. Photos of the event can be found on the Bolton 2016 Gallery page.
