Work has begun on the exciting plans for the play area at Thompson Park.

The revamp of children’s playground is part of a wider £1.2 million Heritage Lottery funded project, which will see the pavilion café, Italian gardens, the boathouse and toilet facilities restored and refurbished.

Burnley Council leader Mark Townsend will hold his next “out and about” surgery on Thursday (16th November) at Padiham Tesco, between 6pm and 8pm.

Councillor Townsend said: “I invite anyone to come along and talk through any issues or concerns they have. These Out and About surgeries are an opportunity for people to talk to me face-to-face about things that matter to them and their community.”

There’s no need to make an appointment - just drop by.

Car parking charges in Burnley are set to be frozen for the second year running as councillors consider proposed fees and charges for services next year.

The move is part of the process for setting the council’s overall budget for 2018/19.

Across the council the fee increase has generally been set at 2%. However, off-street pay and display car parking charges will remain the same next year, although contract parking fees are set to rise by 2%.

A pair of Towneley Hall’s most treasured artworks has gone on tour to the Far East.
 
A watercolour painting of Towneley Hall, together with Temple of Minerva, Cape Colonna, both by J.M.W. Turner have travelled to Japan.
 
The paintings will tour four locations around the country as part of the exhibition “Turner and the Poetics of Landscape”, returning back to Burnley in autumn next year. 
 

Towneley Hall has been delving into its archives to put together a brand new exhibition showcasing Burnley’s past and present.

It’s Not Negative exhibition, which opened on Tuesday, 31st October, gives visitors a rare opportunity to see images reproduced from glass negatives, dating from the 1880 period until the 1930s.

The pictures feature scenes of Burnley streets, local families, playing children, transport, public events and parks.

Arrangements have been made for the annual service of remembrance to be held at the Peace Garden, Croft Street, Burnley, on Sunday, 12th November.

The service will start shortly before 11am and will be conducted by the Bishop of Burnley, Reverend Philip North CMP, Father Roger Parker, Chaplain to the Royal British Legion, and Father Peter Hopkinson of St Mary’s of Assumption.

Members of the public attending are asked to be at the Peace Garden no later than 10.45am.

Our condolences go to the family of the former Mayor of Burnley, Ken Butterworth, who has sadly passed away at his home in Great Yarmouth.

Mr Butterworth served as Mayor in 1984/85. 

 

Work has started on restoring Burnley park gardens to their former glory as part of the £1.2 million Heritage Lottery Funded project.
  
The work on Thompson Park Italian gardens includes repairing and conservation of the shelters and walling, and replanting the flower beds with colourful herbaceous perennials.  
 
The pergolas and Doric columns, which were blown down in 2011 and have been kept in storage, will also be restored and installed in the garden.  
 

Towneley Hall in Burnley has joined forces with a local Lions club to stage an exhibition with a difference. 

The historic hall will be hosting a one-day only exhibition for blind and visually impaired people on Saturday, 18th November, which has been organised by members from Burnley Lions Club. 

Green fingered volunteers have planted thousands of crocus bulbs in Burnley park as part of a worldwide campaign. 

Members of the Rotary Club of Burnley Pendleside together with volunteers from Pennine Lancashire Community Farm planted 5,000 purple crocus bulbs in Thompson Park on the grass area above the rose garden.
