THE Mayor of Burnley Councillor Gordon Birtwistle is planning a charity night at the Railway Club, Rosegrove, tonight, in aid of the Scanner Appeal.

A tribute to Elvis by Andrew Brown will provide the cabaret alongside female artist Linzi. A raffle will also take place.

It is the latest event for the Mayor's appeal -- which has raised more than £50,000 during his year in office.

A spokesman for the club said: "Coun Birtwistle has worked hard for this worthy charity. The show starts at 8pm and admission is free, but a donation would be welcome."

THE Rosegrove Carnival is on Sunday, on Sycamore Avenue Fields, next to Gannow Baths. Attractions will include a fairground, five-a-side football, food and stalls. The gates open at 11am.

Anyone who would like a charity stall at a cost of £5, should turn up on the day. Tombola prizes are still needed and money raised will go towards flowerbeds on the fencing at the Peace Garden and are approximately £85 each.

A FULL planning application has been submitted from car supermarket Motorpoint for a change of use from a plant hire depot to storage and display for sale of motor vehicles, ancillary offices and workshop for vehicle maintenance, at the former Greenwood Plant Hire, Gannow Lane, Rosegrove. Application number app/2003/0262.

COMING soon is a talent show for all ages. Any budding stars, dancers or singers should contact Laura Palmer, Junior Church Queen at Greenbrook Methodist Church, Greenbrook Road, for more information.

A PRODUCTION of Fiddler on the Roof is also being staged at Greenbrook Methodist Church until tomorrow.
