Thank you for inviting us along to the Apple Day. The children had a great time and really enjoyed taking back some apples to share with the rest of the school.
Julie Hall, teacher at Northbrook Primary School
- That's brilliant! It's great to see families have been given the opportunity to be able to explore places such as Tatton park, sometimes it can be difficult to encourage people to go out and about with their loved ones due to work commitments, transport issues but organising trips such as these helps with well-being and helps communities come together.Fahima Ali
There's nothing more enjoyable than sharing food with friends. Enjoyed the company.

"We were happy to leave our desks, roll up our sleeves and get mucked in to support such a worthy cause. Instead of pushing a computer mouse around we were pushing wheelbarrows and it made an interesting change."
Heather Brennan, Burnley Council
Corporate action day
The main office is open to all and whoever is in need, the team will always be happy to help. Everyone is kind to each other and help each other no matter what the condition or what disability someone has, everyone is there for each other.

I have for the last three years had the pleasure of engaging with the PLCF both professionally and personally. In addition to their community involvement I am aware of many worthwhile projects addressing issues around positive engagement with young people coping with various disabilities and health related problems.
I will continue to support the PLCF offering my services wherever possible. —Cllr. Gareth Frayling
Many worthwhile projects
Over the past few years I have had the pleasure of working with Burnley Food Links and more recently with Pennine Lancashire Community Farm, whose sterling work in restoring the allotments to their former glory has provided wonderful educational experiences for our children. The benefits for the children, their families and the community cannot be overstated, and were highlighted in our recent Ofsted inspection. - Mrs M Nearney, Headteacher, Stoneyholme Nursery School
they have successfully and professionally delivered a range of projects within their neighbourhoods, all of which have provided excellent and sustainable solutions to the issues raised by the residents.

“Thank you very much for helping to get our garden growing in the right direction. You all worked tremendously and have done a fantastic job.”
Well organised session, with lots of fun activities that helped the students to remain interested. The Forest School is a fantastic learning environment.
