Hey there – just pointing out the TripAdvisor page for Burrs Country Park. Check it out, give it a visit. Literally, give it a visit maybe using the East Lancashire Railway station between Rawtenstall and Bury – there’s a great day out to be had there. 🙂

Congratulations to all the volunteers taking part in the huge litter-pick at Burrs Country Park. Their hard work has given the park a wonderful spring clean, and it’s also got them a well deserved mention in the Bury Times!

Hi there as discussed at the last meeting group members have took it on themselves to create a Facebook page called Friends of Burrs Country Park – please see further info below. Thumbs up!

Hello 😊

As someone who has shown an interest in Burrs Country Park, I thought you would like to know that I have set up a Facebook page called Friends of Burrs Country Park to get people who are interested in the future of Burrs together. We are a group of local residents and park users who want to help improve Burrs. Please join us and help to make Burrs a beautiful space and an attractive place for people to visit.

Please visit the page and join us.

Hi all – hows it going? Just keeping you up to date on progress with the Heritage Lottery Resilient Fund. The bid is now submitted! We did this just before the meeting on the 15.03.18. Cross everything you have and watch this space for an update in around 10 weeks.

Following the Expression Of Interest we submitted earlier this month we visited Heritage Lottery Fund offices to discuss ideas for Burrs Countryside Park further. The meeting with Louise and Sophie was really quite positive and we have come away with a better idea of how we should shape the final submission. Of course we will be meeting you all again over the next month or two to share in more detail but please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions in the meantime. Thanks.

We are delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with Bury Metropolitan Borough Council and East Lancashire Railway in the development and improvement of Burrs Country Park. Using the Burrs Country Park Strategy 2015 – 2029 as a foundation we are starting to identify priorities and sources of funding which will lead to the improvements within this document. As the programme of work develops and leads to physical improvements on the ground we will be looking for a steer from local residents and users of Burrs Country Park. If you would be interested in getting involved in any aspect or would simply like to know what’s going on in terms of progress, physical improvements community involvement opportunities please book mark this page and or contact us through this page at any time. Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂

Here is a link to the strategy if you would like to find out more.
