Burnley’s parks are, once again, amongst the best in Britain, according to Keep Britain Tidy.

Towneley, Scott, Ightenhill, Queen’s, and Padiham Memorial parks have all retained their Green Flag status for the eighth year running after impressing judges.

An application for Thompson Park was not put forward this year due to the implementation of Heritage Lottery Fund restoration work.

The award, handed out today by Keep Britain Tidy, recognises and rewards the best parks and green spaces across the country.

Residents and community leaders have celebrated the opening of their new play area in Towneley Park.

Around £20,000 was spent on the new facility in the Barwise picnic area, which was formally opened by Councillor John Harbour and Chair of Friends of Towneley Park Maureen Frankland.

Pupils from Springfield Primary School were also on hand to help cut the ribbon and have a go on the new playground, which includes a log cabin, log maze climber, balance beams, hanging log steps and swings. 

As well as the equipment new picnic tables and benches were also installed.

Padiham is celebrating a major lottery win that will help preserve the town’s past for future generations.

The Padiham Townscape Heritage scheme, Crafting the Future, will benefit from £1.4 million of Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) money to help protect the town centre’s historic buildings.

It will also help support work to create an area of special architectural and historic interest and making the town more attractive for residents, workers and visitors.

The project is due to start in the autumn.

A feast of live music will be on offer this weekend as part of an event celebrating the recently installed bandstand in Padiham.

Taking place on 9th July at Padiham Memorial Park, the free event will see many talented artists and dancers whisking local residents and visitors into the festive spirit.

The celebration will start at 1pm with a parade from the town hall to Memorial Park, weaving through the Padiham Greenway.

The parade will be led by a vibrant samba band which will ensure energetic and upbeat start to the main event.

Stretching from the centre of Burnley to the rural outskirts of Worsthorne, the Brun Valley Forest Park invites people to grab a slice of our town’s buzzing parklife as part of its family-friendly fun day.

The day, filled with free family entertainment, starts at 11am on Sunday, 2nd July, covering three different locations – Thompson Park, Queen’s Park and Rowley Lake.

From guided walks and willow weaving to African drumming and besom broom making, there will be something for everyone.

Towneley Park is gearing up for the annual classic car show this Sunday, 25th June.

Car fanatics will be in for a treat with more 300 classic vehicles and motorbikes on display from 11am.

The action-packed day will include lots of refreshment stalls and entertainment suitable for all the family.

Visitors will also have a chance to take a helicopter ride and enjoy spectacular views of Burnley from above.

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.
