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.   

A new round of public consultation has been launched by the Boundary Commission for England as part of a national review that could change the shape of Burnley’s Parliamentary boundary.

Interested parties have until 11th December to comment on the revised proposals. The best way to do this is via the Boundary Commission website www.bce2018.org.ukwhich also has further information about the review.

Burnley Council has launched its annual residents’ survey to gauge people’s priorities and help shape its services.

The survey, which is open to anyone living in the borough, covers a number of issues including satisfaction levels about services, questions about Thompson Park and the customer service the council provides, anti-social behavior issues, and the three best and worst things about Burnley.

A series of events is being held in Padiham over the coming weeks to highlight the work being done to combat crime and anti-social behavior (ASB) in the town.

The events will also give residents the opportunity to raise issues and areas of concern, as well as finding out more about what is happening to tackle local problems.

The borough’s MATAC group, which brings together a wide range of agencies to take a co-ordinated approach to tackling crime and ASB, is organising the campaign.

Burnley councillors have been given an update on the progress of a strategic partnership between the council and private contractor Liberata.

The company was brought in to take over the running of some services from the council. These included customer services, revenue and benefits, and environmental health.

The partnership was part of Burnley Council’s strategic planning around maintaining essential public services while meeting ever-increasing financial challenges.
