Skelmersdale Community Food Initiative – Public Announcement

It is with deep sadness that we have to announce that Skelmersdale Community Food Initiative (SCFI) will be closing from July 2017.
Since 2003, SCFI has served diligently the people of Skelmersdale and West Lancashire, sharing the simple belief that people hold the answers to their life situations within themselves. Every session, course and programme that we have delivered to our area has been based on a commitment to improve when needed, share experience and knowledge and a faithful commitment to its local area and community.
I would like to thank on behalf of our trustees, staff, volunteers and participants for the support we have enjoyed from West Lancashire. We have always strived to offer practical and active support to every participant and group we ever encountered and been privileged to work with.
As a partner in Active West Lancashire collaborative and with approval from our lead partner, West Lancashire Borough Council our programmes linked to this partnership will be continuing without any disruptions.
In the coming weeks we will be communicating further with the support from West Lancs CVS to ensure that the SCFI legacy will be able to pass on its great links and commitment to the voluntary sector within West Lancashire but also to those we have worked with during the lifetime of the organisation.
