I love my home town, really I do! When I was 18, I thought it was the be all and end all and never wanted to leave… a few months later I moved down to the big smoke for 5 years and cried all the way home. Slowly over the last few years I have learned to love Bury again and am happy to call it home again.
A few things I love about my crazy town…
Everyone knows everyone – I kid thee not! Bury really does take the 6 degrees of separation to a whole new level. It really is such a small town that walking around the local superstore or simply into town always results in unexpected conversations with people you have not seen in a while.
Black Puddings – Not everyone’s cup of tea, but you really have not lived until you have walked around Bury’s World Famous market chomping on a hot Black Pudding, something Bury is famous for! Maybe finishing it off with an Eccles cake if you are still feeling peckish!
Sir Robert Peel – The founder of the Metropolitan Police Force and Prime Minister from 1841- 1846. Bury really has been home to some famous faces… alongside Gary and Phil Neville, Lisa Riley (who was a house on my estate!), most of the Coronation Street cast and many more… who knows… one day Liv may even become a famous person from Bury!
