Electoral register follow-up visits begin

Local residents are being reminded that follow-up visits are about to start to those householders who have not yet returned their annual voter registration canvass form.

The forms were hand delivered to every household in the borough last month (July) asking residents to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.

The aim of the form is to ensure that the electoral register is up to date and to identify any residents who are not registered so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Community clean-up idea is set to be extended

Organisers of a community clean-up campaign in Burnley are hoping the idea will be extended.

Volunteers from the Jamia Masjid Ibrahim mosque took part in a litter pick on Saturday (18th August) after residents raised concern about the cleanliness of the area with local councillor Saeed Chaudhary.

Councillor Chaudhary arranged with the mosque for the community to get together and tackle the issue.

Burnley Council provided litter pickers, gloves, hi-vis jackets and bags.

Major park restoration programme celebration

A Burnley park  has been officially re-launched following nine months of restoration work funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Burnley Council.

Guests gathered at the new gates at Thompson Park on Sunday (19th) to watch deputy Mayor of Burnley Councillor Anne Kelly officially unveil the new-look park.

The day included a Fun in the Park event including dance, music and stalls.

Both the park’s boathouse and pavilion have been restored to a high standard while retaining their original 1930s’ architectural features.

Burnley park marks culmination of £1.2m restoration with fun day

One of Burnley’s best-loved parks will officially be “re-opened” this Sunday (19th August) following a £1.2 million restoration project.

The official ceremony will take place at the main entrance gates on Ormerod Road at 1.30pm and form part of a Fun in the Park event from noon to 4pm.

Work started on refurbishing the park in December 2017 and the project was largely funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund following a successful application by Burnley Council, which also contributed £250,000 towards the cost.
