Burnley Civic Trust Heritage Image Collection
In 2016 Burnley Civic Trust was gifted the Burnley Express Newspaper Archive by Johnston Press.

The archive is extensive and we aim to make as many of these images available online as soon as possible.

We have Upcoming Events to raise awareness of the collection and our project.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 1st APRIL EVENT AND ALL FUTURE EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED until further notice.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE, OCTOBER 2020: We have now installed Covid 19 safety measures in our archive rooms but recent tighter restrictions and increasing numbers of cases mean that we are unable to invite volunteers back into the rooms until the situation improves. Some volunteers are now working from home and we will continue to upload images to the website.

 

50 years Ago

Mr. Hindle pours out a sherry for Mrs. M. Boardman, a member of Ightenhill Townswomen's Guild. Looking on (left to right), Mr. A. Miller, Miss. E. A. Lancaster, Mr. H. Adey, Mrs. P. Burnett and Mrs. A. Yates.

Representatives of 15 voluntary organisations, who have helped the Burnley Group of Hospitals during the past year, were received at a sherry evening as a token of the group's appreciation. Forty-six representatives of the organisations - which between them have raised four and a half thousand pounds in the past year to improve facilities for hospital patients - attended the reception at Burnley General Hospital.

They were addressed by Mr. E. Hindle, chairman of the Hospital Management Committee who said that it would be impossible to refer to all the services provided by organisations but all had brought a great deal of comfort and pleasure to the sick and the Hospital Management Group were most grateful for everyone's efforts.
