West Lancs Positive Living was set up by a group of parents in February 2005 with initial meetings in 2004. 2015 was the 10th Anniversary of West Lancs Positive Living.
We had a 10th Anniversary Party at Skelmersdale Crickert Club on Friday 24th April 2015.
Initial meetings were in late 2004, the meeting on the 8th February 2005 saw the name West Lancs Psitive Living come about. Other possible names included the Way Ahead Group. At first we took the form of a “Special Interest Group Pilot Project” including a “making music group” and a “outdoor pursuits/rambling group”. Following on was a “Theme Park Group”. We visted Alton Towers (photo on our office wall!) and Camelot in our early years. Our Constitution was written on 12th September 2005. Over time SIG became what we now call PLA. We started running a supporting living service. We grew and developed. We was registered as a charity on 3rd March 2006. Time flew and here we are in 2015 ! Happy Birthday – West Lancs Positive Living. Thanks go to all the parents/ staff/ individuals who have been involved in the organisation from the beginning to current date. Special thanks go to Tess Reddington who started it all off and was the driving force in the early years.
