About Blackburn News from Blackburn Life

BlackburnBlackburn Life began as a small blog about Blackburn, Lancashire and has grown into a positive voice for the town. We are on the web and across social media. We have one of the largest followings on Facebook in the area. People follow us for news, events, business & charity stories and job links. We actively support a range of businesses, organisations and charities in the town and beyond. They trust our personal service and connections with other partners.

We welcome volunteer writers for Blackburn Life who want to make a positive contribution to the town. We are particularly looking for writers for local history, sport and health. You can contact us any time by email on mynews@blackburnlife.com. If you are interested, please get in touch.

We are a small team that work hard to bring you a lively and active website. We appreciate the support we have received since our launch in 2011. If you have any constructive comments about the site, we are always happy to hear from you.

Our events' calendar is available to all local people and businesses for you to advertise your events. You can submit the event, using the links on our site, to help you reach a wider audience.

Our Twitter account at @BlackburnLife offers a retweet service for your local events and news. Just add #BlackburnLife to your tweet and reach thousands of extra people.

We actively support the Blackburn BID (Business Improvement Disctrict). We also support local charity Child Action NW, who we provided sponsorship for their collection boxes. We are keen to help support other local charities. Please contact us with your news and events for a truly local service.
