Latest update for residents following Bolton Fire

We have just had a briefing from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and at the moment they will not allow us, or anyone else, back into the Arches or the Picture House, and we do not know when they will as the area is still extremely hazardous.  

If you need temporary accommodation, please contact us on 0161 610 4746 and we can arrange this for you.  

If you have pets in either building, please email  

We are working in partnership with Bolton Community Kitchen on Bradshawgate (opposite Primark) who serve hot food and drinks. They also have a supply of clothes and bedding for anyone affected who may need them.

We are also working with the fire service to secure the homes. 

We understand that this is frustrating, and you are keen to know more. We are being directed by the emergency services on this and will keep you updated as soon as we know more via text and email. Thank you for your patience.
