Community Information for Burnley

Does your community group or organisation have a message that they want to get out there?  Do you have a service or activity that you want to promote?  Perhaps you would like to spread the word about a new campaign or appeal, or maybe you are just thinking about starting up a group and want to find like-minded people to join you?

Share with us what you are planning and we will help get your message out there.
