We are pleased to announce that two of the USN Bolton Arena’s long-standing sponsors have recently extended their sponsorship.
Bolton School – one of the oldest in Lancashire dating back to at least 1516 – are extending their sponsorship into a fourth year.
The prestigious independent school has 2,500 pupils, ranging from its nursery to a sixth form college, and with a reputation that extends nationally.
Marketing Manager John Newbould explained that the Arena’s ability to reach the school’s target audience was behind their decision to sponsor the Arena: “When we monitored parents, a lot of them said they went to the gym or sports centre so we decided to sponsor the Arena.”
Another organisation extending its sponsorship is Fastsigns.
Based on Bury New Road, Bolton, the well-known local franchise is now owned by David Hiney, who has recently had a career change after more than 20 years in IT.
As well as offering traditional signage, Fastsigns also specialises in digital signage and other services such as vehicle wrapping. Its clients range from large companies to local schools and small businesses.
Fastsigns has been a sponsor and preferred signage supplier of the USN Bolton Arena since 2010 and Mr Hiney was particularly keen to retain the sponsorship.
“It has certainly been successful for Fastsigns because of our visibility there,” he stated, “and I particularly like being a part of the local community which I think is really important.
“I want Fastsigns to be seen as a business service for local businesses as well as our clients in a wider area and feel this sponsorship works for us.”

VISITORS to the USN Bolton Arena may now notice that it’s much easier to find your way around the building.
This is down to a £6,000 investment in a large range of new internal signage which the Arena has created with the help of one of its sponsors, Fastsigns.
As the Arena’s Commercial Manager, Gwyn Hughes, explained: “Many of the signs we had were original to the building from 15 years ago. Things have changed considerably since then, with new facilities being added and the use of certain facilities changing, so we felt it was time to bring the signage fully up to date.
“Designing a new signage scheme for a building like Bolton Arena is a major project. We walked for several miles around the Arena’s 3 floors over and over again to make sure the content and position of the signs were right.
“We have worked with Fastsigns over a number of years. This is by far the biggest job they have done for us and we are delighted with the outcome. We are already receiving lots of positive feedback from staff and customers.
“We are very grateful to Fastsigns for their professional work on this project and for their loyal support as sponsors.
