Last Tuesday was a proud day for Burnley as the town was named the “Most Enterprising Area in Britain 2013”.
The announcement was celebrated in style and even Burnley’s most-famous supporter The Prince Of Wales got in on the act with a front-page message to readers.
But while we can reflect proudly on the achievement, what is important now is that the town maximises this accolade and continues to attract much-needed new investment to the borough.
Burnley is certainly on the up, and our profile has probably never been higher. We now need to take our efforts to the next level.
