This Sunday sees the "re-opening" of Thompson Park, Burnley, following a £1.2 million refurbishment programme.

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.

Dog owners are being given the chance to have their pets “chipped” for free at a special event in Burnley.

The Dogs Trust has teamed up with Burnley Council to run a free microchipping event at Thursby Park, Queen Victoria Road, on Wednesday 22nd August, between 11am and 3pm.

“The law changed in 2016 and your dog must be chipped,” said council dog warden Matthew Balderson. “Chipping makes it a lot easier to identify a dog and return it to its owner if it goes missing. It’s a quick and relatively painless procedure.”

Burnley woman Toni Heys was overjoyed to receive a £500 “bonus” towards her wedding fund after winning a prize draw organised on behalf of Burnley Council by its strategic partner Liberata.

The borough’s residents were offered the chance to enter the draw if they opted to receive this year’s council tax bill online, rather than a paper version, to cut down on red tape and save money, as well as reducing phone waiting times and other benefits for users.
