Samlesbury Playscheme began as Samlesbury Mega Fun Week in 1999 after the Canberra Club had seen what we do at Leyland and initially wanted to replicate this at Samlesbury primarily for the benefit of workers at British Aerospace. The scheme very quickly grew by word of mouth alone and is just about the largest of the two schemes.
Samlesbury Playscheme is administratively separate from Leyland Playscheme with all administration handled by full-time staff at the Canberra Club in Samlesbury. Although separate the schemes are incredibly intertwined with both following identical patterns of operation and having the same underlying principles. Leyland Playscheme acts effectively as consultants responsible for the planning and execution of the Playscheme in Samlesbury.
