"it’s really sad to see that people are still leaving junk"
Faryal Makhdoom has hit back at people dumping rubbish close to the wedding venue that is being financed by her husband Amir Khan.
The influencer also urged people to keep Bolton clean.
Faryal expressed her concern about the amount of fly-tipping happening on Back Deane Road, against the wall of the Excellency Plaza, which is currently being developed on Washington Road.
It is believed that rubbish is being dumped on back streets.
Despite the rubbish being outside the wedding venue, Faryal and Amir have had to have it cleared several times to keep the area looking nice.
Faryal said: “We are trying to make Bolton a better place. We’re building a huge wedding hall and have spent £15 million on it.
“Amir could have chosen any place, but he chose Bolton because it’s his hometown.
“We’re building a nice site so it’s really sad to see that people are still leaving junk and things around and every time we pick it up and clean the area, the same thing happens again.
“So, we’re trying to do something for the community and people are not helping.
“I want to say from myself and Amir to keep Bolton clean and try to help it like we are.”
Stating that this is not the first time that rubbish has had to be cleared up from the area, Faryal continued:
“It’s happened so many times.
“We’ve obviously had it a few years and it will finally be ready to open in October so it’s almost there.
“It’s sad it’s still happening, how many times can you get it clean?
“It’s a place where people can visit and come to take pictures, but rubbish has appeared five to six times now.”
Speaking about her husband, Faryal Makhdoom said:
“Amir was born and bred here so he wants to give back to the community.
“Bolton is close to our hearts, we still have a house in Bolton and I do have a little love for Bolton.”
“We live in a nice part and people should want to keep their areas clean because it’s not nice to see the junk.”
The wedding venue, which has been undergoing work since 2015, will have 18 retail units on the ground floor devoted to wedding businesses, three wedding halls and a restaurant, alongside a rooftop shisha bar.
Plans also include a river stream from the outside flowing inside to the wedding stage with the floors estimated to cost £1 million.
