Burnley was recently named the most enterprising place in Britain by the government. The Lancashire town received the accolade for its ongoing commitment to support small and medium sized businesses and for successfully reframing perceptions of Burnley.

The Burnley Bondholders scheme sets Burnley apart from the rest of Britain, an initiative that brings together over 100 local firms that work together to promote Burnley as a place for business. Through the consortium's combined passion and hard work to promote local enterprise through media channels they have attracted £10m to the area.

The Burnley Bondholder scheme stood out from other entries in this year's 'most enterprising place' category of the Enterprising Britain Awards because it demonstrated how collaborative thinking can make a real difference to an area.

Michael Fallon, business and enterprise minister, said: "The Burnley Bondholders scheme is reinvigorating the local economy and helping to change perceptions of Burnley. Initiatives like this are working hard to boost growth and thoroughly deserve recognition and the opportunity to represent the UK at the European Awards in November.

"These awards showcase the entrepreneurial spirit that can be found in local authorities, businesses, schools and colleges across the country."
