Crowds turn out to celebrate canal’s 200th “birthday”

People braved the perhaps appropriately wet weather to celebrate the 200th “birthday” of Britain’s longest single canal waterway.

They gathered at Weavers’ Triangle yesterday (Tuesday) teatime to welcome the arrival of the Kennet canal barge as part of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal bicentenary celebrations.

The bells of St Peter’s Church pealed out as the Kennet and a flotilla of other craft made their way to Burnley Wharf where the boats were met by the Mayor of Burnley, Councillor Jeff Sumner, and other guests.

Nation’s favourite bear pays a visit to Burnley Town Hall

Members of staff at Burnley Town Hall have been treated to a very special visit by a fluffy yellow guest in support of Children in Need.

The BBC’s very own Pudsey Bear took time out of his packed fund-raising schedule and dropped by the town hall on Monday, 17th October.

The famous bear had a busy day strolling around Burnley town centre with his collection bucket raising funds for this year’s appeal.

Visits to the town hall and local businesses were organised by the town’s Boots store.

Central library transformed as Burnley receives European flag of Honour

Burnley’s central library had the atmosphere of a Parisian boulevard on Saturday 15th October, as the venue was transformed into a European cultural centre to celebrate the latest award to be given to the town.

French tricolours flew alongside the Union Jack, an accordionist played French style music, and there were Madeleine cakes for guests. A French style café, films, exhibitions and even a magic show added to the atmosphere.
