Improving Burnley park is local fishermen’s angle

Release date: 
Saturday, 2 September, 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.

The educational signs feature life above and below water, including various birds, fish, insects, and plants which can all be seen in the park.

These range from grey herons and kingfishers to common eels and dragonflies.

This work complements the signage and footpath improvements that have been taking place in order to make the park more accessible and enjoyable. 

Other interpretation signs have been put up around Bank Hall, Thursby Gardens and near the Thornton Arms car park. 

Cllr John Harbour, the council’s executive member responsible for greenspaces, said: “The new signs look fantastic and are the result of a great partnership work with local community groups. I would like to thank Burnley and Pendle anglers for their kind donation, which will encourage more families to explore the great outdoors in Burnley.” 

Richard Burrow, Chair of the Burnley and Pendle Anglers Association, said: “We are delighted to see these panels which provide information in an attractive way.  They help to educate anglers and the public on the great biodiversity we have here at Rowley Lake.  We look forward to continuing this harmonious relationship with Burnley Council and the Friends of Rowley Lake.”
