London to Paris Cycle Ride 2018

A New Lifestyle at Alderley Park


September, 2018

They Made It !

Our intrepid team of cyclists, supported by two marvellous crew, completed the 200-mile journey from London to Paris by bike – and raised thousands of pounds for The Birches specialist support school at Didsbury

Leaving London’s Trafalgar Square at dawn on Friday morning for an overnight ferry to Dieppe the 14-strong group pedalled into Paris late Sunday afternoon and celebrated at the Eiffel Tower.

The route took them through beautiful countryside and picturesque villages before a lively entrance into Paris – where an earlier sportive meant the road was closed and the gendarmes allowed a rare group photo directly under the tower.

Huge amounts of effort went into organising the many elements of the trip but special mention to Maria Schofield and Richard Dingle for the logistics of hotels, the ferry and pre-training and to Steve Alcock for plotting the route.

And a big thank you too to Slater Heelis Law for generously sponsoring the team jerseys and to Virgin Active in Brighton for providing a spa pit stop before the team boarded the ferry.

Director Craig Lynch said: “It was a fantastic team effort all round and an amazing experience.”
But the most important thanks go to the very many generous people who showed their support by donating to the fund raising. We have surpassed our initial target of £10,000 and would love to reach £15,000 before the Just Giving page HERE closes on October 5th.

Every penny will go to help The Birches create new outdoor spaces for the pupils and we look forward to visiting the school to hand over the cheque and learn more about their plans.

2018 PJ Livesey Team Challenge

New Didsbury Villas on Sandhurst Road


JULY, 2018

2018 PJ Livesey Team Challenge

It is time to announce the PJ Livesey Team challenge for 2018.

Previous years have seen staff from our Trafford Park HQ tackle a Tough Mudder Course and scale the UK’s Three Peaks as we challenge ourselves and also raise money for charity.

This year we are pushing the international boundaries and plan a sponsored cycle from London to Paris.

Fourteen members of staff are now in training for the Arch to Arc trip with weekly cycles around the region and training weekends planned.

We are looking to raise as much as possible with every penny being donated to The Birches school in Didsbury.

The school stands right next door to our latest site at the Siemens campus on Nell Lane and directors Georgina Livesey and Craig Lynch have been to see first-hand the facilities and wonderful work of the staff and their vibrant pupils.

The school caters for around 150 children with a wide range of complex learning difficulties from across the region and while funded by the local authority is always in need of money for extras.

Headteacher Rob O’Hara said: “We have been in communication with PJ Livesey since they started on site earlier in the year and we are delighted to have such supportive neighbours. The sponsored ride sounds a magnificent idea and the school is delighted to be the recipient.

“We are constantly looking to see how we can develop our school, and further enrich the lives of our pupils and their families and please know that every turn of the pedals will have a direct positive effect on what we can achieve and we are extremely grateful to all of you.”

We hope our big effort will be able to make some small difference to the pupil’s lives.

Ditchingham Maltings & the Wall of Friendship Book

New Didsbury Villas on Sandhurst Road


JUNE, 2018


We love heritage buildings – and love that other’s share our passion for their history and character

When we started work on the site of a former silk mill at Ditchingham Maltings on the Suffolk/Norfolk border five years ago we knew the site had played an important role in the area’s history.

As well as employing hundreds of local people working seven days a week for eight months a year as maltsters the buildings had also been used by American servicemen during World War II.

While happy with their posting making great friends with the welcoming local community they also started a ‘Friendship Wall’ inscribing their name and the US State they called home, onto one of the walls inside the maltings.

One of the conditions of redevelopment was to preserve these bricks so they were carefully removed by hand, cleaned and given to the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum at Flixton.
We are delighted to hear that the story of The Maltings and the many servicemen who added their name to the wall has been collated into a book by museum curator Huby Fairhead who we had the pleasure of meeting on site.

He very kindly sent us a copy and we appreciate his thanks to our staff for the efforts they took to preserve the precious bricks without damage. They have since led to the discovery of many wonderful stories told in the book.

Moor Park, Lancaster has it’s own retail store




We are delighted to announce that the bespoke retail unit next to our Moor Park development on Quernmore Road will be a Co-op Food Store

Designed to fit in with the development and serve the local neighbourhood the 4,000sq ft store will have its own dedicated car parking for customers.

We have selected the Rochdale based retailer as part of the group’s commitment to supporting local suppliers and producers, together with its strong community support. Construction work will start in Spring as part of the second phase of the development and will open before the end of 2018.

Moor Park is a collection of handsome substantial stone built houses approached down a mature tree lined drive and sits in the grounds of the ‘The Residence’, the award-winning P J Livesey conversion of the former Lancaster Moor Hospital.

The food store is one of a number of community benefits enabled by the development. Other substantial contributions have been made to a local bus service and improvements to nearby football pitches and neighbouring open space.
