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.

Relatives of two Burnley soldiers who received this country’s highest military honour for their bravery in the First World War will travel to the town for a ceremony to commemorate the fallen heroes.

The event on Saturday (2nd Sept) will include a guard of honour from the Coldstream Guards who will parade in their ceremonial tunics.

The ceremony to honour Thomas Whitham and Hugh Colvin, who both received the Victoria Cross for their actions, will be held in the town’s Peace Garden, outside the Central Library, from 11am. All are welcome to attend.

A special meeting will be held at Burnley Town Hall on Wednesday 6th September. Councillor will be asked to ratify the recommendation of the Appointments Committee that Mick Cartledge be selected as Burnley Council's new Chief Executive.

Mr Cartledge is currently the Chief Operating Officer at Burnley. The appointment comes after a robust recruitment process.
