Residents and businesses are being asked to support a campaign to ensure faster broadband access across the whole of Burnley borough.

People are being asked to carry out a simple check to establish what their broadband speed actually is, rather than an advertised speed, and let Burnley Council know by taking part in an online survey.

A group of local councilors is looking into the roll-out of superfast broadband in the borough, particularly in outlying rural areas.

The best of British wildlife photography set to take centre stage at Towneley Hall, Burnley.

Stunning wildlife from across the country will feature in the British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) 2016 exhibition which starts on September 16.

With 15 categories, the awards showcase the best of nature photography chosen from thousands of entries from across the country and raise awareness about biodiversity, British species and their habitats.

Pupils from Padiham Green Primary School were in for a history lesson with a difference thanks to a trip to a local museum and art gallery.

More than 150 children visited Towneley Hall as part of the school’s art week to get up close and personal with some of the fantastic artefacts housed at the hall.

They spent the day looking at sculptures and oil paintings, examining old street signs, studying different furniture around the hall, and learning about the meaning behind the war memorial in the park.

Burnley Council is delighted to announce it has been awarded just over £9,000 from the Arts Council England (ACE) towards the 2017 Burnley Literary Festival.

Burnley’s Town Centre Manager, Catherine Price, applied to the Arts Council earlier this year for support for this year’s Literary Festival and she’s delighted to have once again secured funding for the event.

Following the success of the first Burnley Literary Festival last year, the ACE funding will ensure the event can grow and offer an even more diverse programme for 2017.

Keen anglers have splashed out and donated money to improve a Burnley park.

Burnley and Pendle District Angling Association donated £300 to Burnley Council.

The money was used to install two colourful interpretation panels on a wheelchair accessible fishing platform at Rowley Lake in the Brun Valley Forest Park. 

The panels were designed by a local artist and the research was done by the council’s park ranger Graham Gavaghan.

Councillor Christine White has been out and about in the Rosehill and Burnley Wood area passing round leaflets promoting local businesses.

Produced by Burnley Council, the booklet features a wide range of businesses including cafés, pubs, restaurants, beauty salons, car garages, food shops, and many more.
