UCFB is delighted to announce a renewed partnership with Burnley Council that will see three students from the town awarded a £3,000 scholarship to study a university degree in the football, business and related industries at UCFB Etihad Campus in Manchester.

Burnley Council has received confirmation that it has secured a grant of £861,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) towards the £1.19 million costs of restoring Thompson Park, it was announced today (Monday 9th Jan).

The project aims to restore the Grade II listed park and to celebrate its heritage, from its opening in 1930 to the present day.

“Water" way to spread the festive cheer. Local anglers have splashed out and donated money to improve a Burnley park.

Burnley and Pendle District Angling Association donated £556 to Burnley Council. The money will be used to pay for a new noticeboard which will be installed at Rowley Lake car park by the council’s greenspaces team. 

It will allow fisherman and the wider community to share information, which is currently being zip-tied to fences and pinned to trees causing damage to them.

“This must be one of the best parks in the country”

So said BBC reporter John Maguire as millions of TV viewers saw Towneley Park, Burnley, in all its morning glory.

The park and its historic hall formed the picturesque backdrop for a live broadcast into this morning’s (Friday) BBC Breakfast Show. The BBC was looking at the way managing Britain’s parks has changed in the light of national funding cuts.

Burnley Council has been recognised national for its innovative approach to managing not only parks, but grass and woodland and other open areas.

From the centre of the industrial revolution to the heart of a modern revolution in slow living, Burnley Canal Festival returns in August 2016 to mark the bicentenary of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and give visitors the chance to rest, reflect and take to the water.

Artists will join dancers, bands, boaters and residents in staging a ‘creative revolution’ two centuries after industry came to dominate the north of England, creating new artworks and performances along the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal.
