Just before their final meeting of 2017, members of Burnley Council's executive made a visit to review the results of a major refurbishment of Burnley town centre.

They were joined by representatives from town centre businesses.

Councillor Lian Pate, executive member for community services, said: "We've been keeping a close eye on the town centre improvements as they've progressed and it's great to see them finally coming to completion.

Councillors are set to back plans to create a Children’s University in Burnley as part of a far-reaching strategy to help more of the borough's young people achieve their potential.

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to agree a three-year commitment to the establishment of the educational initiative which encourages children from the age of five to try new experiences outside of normal school hours.

The commitment is included in a Making It In Burnley aspiration strategy which also proposes a number of other measures.

Pavement ‘street art’ will be used in the battle against underage drinking in Burnley in the run-up to Christmas.

Eye-catching pavement stencils will be put in place by the borough’s Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) as part of a festive crackdown on adults attempting to buy alcohol for young people (known as a proxy purchase).

Local shops are joining in the campaign. The stencils will be displayed outside their premises and leaflets will be made available to customers to explain that buying alcohol for under-18s is an offence and shops have the right to refuse sales.

Forecasters are predicting winter weather this weekend, especially on Sunday.
