There will be pomp and ceremony galore as Padiham goes on parade and turns the clock back to remember the wartime spirit that saw Britain through the Second World War.

As part of the Burnley Armed Forces Covenant, Veterans and others have come together again this year to organise the popular 1940s weekend.

Saturday (24th June) and Sunday (25th) Padiham will be buzzing with displays and free entertainment for all the family.

Burnley Council will celebrate the first ever National Clean Air Day on Thursday, 15th June 2017.

Co-ordinated by environmental change charity, Global Action Plan, and funded by Defra, the day will see the council raise awareness about air quality and health impacts of air pollution.

Throughout the clean air day, the council will be using social media networks to share cutting-edge advice on avoiding and tackling urban air pollution, sourced from health experts and academics.

The streets of Burnley burst into life today as big-hearted runners took part in one of the North West’s best-loved runs.

It was the fifth annual running of the Asda Foundation Burnley 10K which since its launch has established itself as one of the highlights on the region’s sporting calendar.

A run-down house in Burnley which lay empty for more than 20 years has been brought back to life thanks to Burnley Council.

The semi-detached property in Rennie Street had been empty since 1994 and had fallen into disrepair and was having a detrimental impact on the surrounding area.

The council stepped in using its Empty Homes Programme and renovated the property, which is now up for sale and ready to be snapped up by a buyer.

The summer is just around the corner and the programme of free concerts for Burnley’s award-winning parks will soon be getting underway.

Brass in the Parks 2017 commences on Sunday, 4th June, with Pendle Jazzmen performing at the recently opened bandstand in Padiham Memorial Park.

The event, which takes place between 2-4pm, will be followed by a number of further concerts across Burnley’s parks:

The deadline is approaching on the formal consultation for final representations on the draft Burnley Local Plan.

The council approved the Proposed Submission Plan at the end of March, and a formal consultation for final representations is currently underway and will run up to and including Friday 26th May.

A council spokesperson said: “The Proposed Submission Plan is on the council’s website and printed copies are available to view at Contact Burnley, Burnley Central Library and Padiham Library.

Professional and budding artists are set to pick up their paintbrushes and descend to Padiham for an open-air painting competition on Saturday 13th May.

The first ever Painting Padiham event will see artists of all skills competing against each other using a wide range of styles and media.

The event will kick off at 8am at the newly opened the Storm Art Gallery in Burnley Road, where artists will receive their painting supplies before occupying their spots.

They will be dotted within a one-mile radius around Padiham Town Hall capturing scenes of the town.

Burnley Council’s chief executive Pam Smith has been appointed to the role of chief executive at Stockport Council.

Following a meeting at Stockport Town Hall next week, a timetable will be agreed for Mrs Smith to take up her new job.

Burnley Council leader Councillor Mark Townsend said: “I would like to congratulate Pam Smith on her appointment to her new role.

When the new meets the old - 21st Century technology is helping people to look into Towneley Hall’s past and present.

Burnley’s “jewel in the crown” has rolled out a new website that will make finding out about the events and exhibitions held at the historic Burnley building easier.

The vibrant website, designed by Burnley Council’s graphics team, showcases a comprehensive list of all social and historical events coming to the hall and the award-winning park.

Eye-catching images of picturesque countryside and colourful birds are among those on show at a photo exhibition in Burnley.

Professional and amateur photographers from Burnley Camera Club have staged the annual exhibition at Towneley Hall to mark the start of a new photography season.

The club has a membership of more than 30 members, and has chosen over 40 special photos to display at the exhibition, which they hope will inspire an interest in the photography.
