Raising the curtain on imaginative Burnley arts project

Part of Burnley town centre is to be given an artistic make-over thanks to an imaginative arts project.

The project, called Raise The Curtain, will take place in lower St James Street which has recently been earmarked a High Street Heritage Action Zone (HAZ).

It aims to tell the story of the area through street-level shutter artworks, combining art and heritage to engage a new audience.

Guidance on community events and occasions issued

The Lancashire Resilience Forum (LRF) has issued guidance on restrictions around upcoming faith and community events for the remainder of 2020 due to coronavirus. The restrictions relate to upcoming events including:
• Prophet Muhammad's birthdate (28/29 October)
• Halloween (31 October)
• Bonfire celebrations (5 - 7 November)
• Remembrance Sunday (8 November)
• Diwali (14 November)
• Hanukkah (10 – 18 December)
• the switching on of Christmas lights.

Plea from Council Leader: Don't mix with other households

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend has urged local residents not to mix with anyone outside their household or social "bubble" unless absolutely necessary as infection rates in the borough soar dramatically above the national average.
 
"We have to do something now before it's too late," warned Councillor Townsend.
 
Burnley is well into the "red zone" in terms of the numbers of positive cases of Covid-19 and the figures are rising. Cases are increasing in every part of the borough.
 

Positive test? How to protect your family, friends and neighbours

If you've got possible coronavirus symptoms, you should try to isolate from the other people you share the house with.

This is especially important if you live in a shared house with other people, such as students. Or if you live in a house with different generations such as children, parents and grandparents.

This helps to reduce the chance of it spreading between families.

New bins! But please continue to use the old recycling boxes until October thanks!

The new recycling and waste collection calendar is being delivered.

Also for those moving to wheeled bins, delivery is underway– blue for glass, cans and plastic; dark grey for paper/cardboard. BUT PLEASE REMEMBER– these should not be used until October when the first of the new collections start. Please use the old recycling boxes etc., until then. Thank you!
