Burnley Leisure has been shortlisted in the prestigious ukactive Awards and are in the running for an outstanding award, beating off strong competition to make the finals.
St Peter’s Leisure Centre has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Regional and National Club/Centre of the Year category in the ukactive Awards 2019,an annual event which recognises excellence and achievement in health and fitness throughout the country.
The riverside play area in Towneley Park has been re-opened by local youngster eight-year-old Kenzie Lumsden following a major refurbishment undertaken by Burnley Council's greenspaces team.
Kenzie is disabled and wasn't able to use the previous equipment but the refurbished play area featured equipment that is accessible and open for Kenzie, and others like him, to use. He was put forward to officially re-open the playground and the council was pleased to allow him the honour.
