I wasn't aware there was a distinct subsection of the village, but apparently "Little Lever West" are holding an annual meeting on 9th June,
I'M NOT A FAN OF THE ALL CAPITALS TEXT WHICH IS HORRIBLY UNREADABLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE'S SO MUCH OF IT ON THE PAGE.
If someone could get in there, and keep complaining about that for an hour, that'll keep me happy!

Ye Olde Maps : The Village, as it was..This is spreading through Facebook, today, so I figured I should probably post it here for anyone who might visit. (!?)
maps.nls.uk allows you to see the current streetmap/satellite view directly next to the same area's map from the early 1900's.
You can zoom in and out, take a peek at the area your house is/will be, and .. then.. um.. zoom back out again!
Fascinating history stuff, and fun to play about with, if you're into maps and history and stuff like that.
You can Click here to jump directly into the village.
Let us know if you spot anything "weird" whilst noseying around.
I've spent the past hour or so searching Google, the Bolton News, ITN, BBC and more, desperately searching for ANY information on the big Chloride Lorival Plastics factory blaze, in the early/mid 90s.
I find it curious that there's little/no information online, especially since it even got a teensy bit of TV news coverage.
The only reference I can find, in the Bolton News archives, is a small reference to the blaze during a report that the factory was banning smoking!!
Anyway, whilst hunting, I stumbled across this, and thought you might enjoy it.
