We are a Preferred Provider for Lancashire County Council, and an accredited training centre with City and Guilds.

 

People can come for full days, half days or just a few a few hours a week. A full day is from 9.00 till 3.00. 

 

We provide activities in a real working environment, we have a plant nursery where plants are grown to sell on our shop which is open to the public. We have pine cabins which we use for our arts and crafts, and cookery sessions and we have a woodwork tunnel and mosaic room. We have plenty of open spaces and lovely gardens including a sensory pathway. We access other community venues for some of our activities. We offer a supportive environment for people to learn new skills, meet new people, socialise, improve confidence, keep fit and have fun!

Cookery and baking

 

We utilise the produce we grow to make soups, curries and other dishes.We also make biscuits, fudge, pizza, gingerbread, cup cakes and much more.

 

There is a role for everyone in the preparation and cooking process. We then share what we have made and eat together or take it home for our family or friends.

Arts and Crafts 

 

We have various arts and crafts sessions through the week, we make a range of items and seasonally theme what we make.
 
You can see some of what we make on our Crafts page and meet some of our artists and crafters.

Gardening 

 

We have a beautiful 2 acre site which offers a wide range of gardening activities to suit all abilities. From tending the borders, mowing the lawns, strimming the edges, planting the flower displays, growing veg in the raised beds and allotment area and tending the herb garden. We also have a sensory garden which offers many opportunities as we develop it.

Trips out and about

 

We go on regular trips out, some are educational and some just for fun.

 

Tell us where you would like to go and we will try and make it happen!

 

 

Boxing

 

We go to boxing sessions with Bay Fit in Morecambe.

 

Great way to keep fit whilst having fun!

Pottery


We go to pottery sessions at Halton Mill.

 

It is a fully equiped workhop that we hire, complete with potters wheel and kiln.

 

 

Dog walking

 

We walk dogs for Wolfwood Animal Rescue.

 

We collect them in our van and take them to parks or other nice places to walk them, this keeps both the dogs and us fit and healthy.

Cycling

 

We go cycling at Salt Arye and ride the adapted bikes. Sometimes we ride in the sports hall and sometimes we ride outside on the cycle track.

Sports

 

We go to Salt Arye to join in with their disability muti sports activities and we also hire the climbing wall there.

 

We have footbal, archery and other games on site which are ideal for keeping us fit and having fun.

 

 

 

 

Yoga sessions

 

We have yoga sessions each week in a yoga studio with Rebecca. In this gentle yoga class we work to carefully stretch, stremthen and relax the body with simple and beautiful phyical posture sequences.

Our greenhouses

 

There is plenty to do all year round in our greenhouses and poly tunnels. We grow plants, veg, herbs and do hanging baskets and containers. We have won awards for the horticultural work we have done

How do people access Piccadilly’s Support Service? 

 

The first thing is to arrange with us to come and have a look round and find out more about what Piccadilly has to offer. It is possible to do a taster session to get a feel for Piccadilly if the person wishes to do so. If the person has a Direct Payment they can make arrangements to start directly with Piccadilly, if they don’t have a direct payment they will need to contact social services customer care or their social worker if they already have one, to arrange for funding to be put in place.
