Friends Of Buckshaw Village Cheeky Monkeys - Chorley’s popular Family Entertainment Centre (FEC) has announced they will be moving premises in 2019. Established in 2003 and currently based in Whittle-le-Woods, Cheeky Monkeys will definitely be staying local says Director Lorraine Kearney; “We are a Chorley based company and intend to stay that way. We have had great support from local developers, Chorley Council and Lindsay Hoyle MP and we are determined to keep our 40 jobs and the local supply chain we use, within Chorley. The team and I are very excited about the future and we are all looking forward to expanding the business and introducing new leisure experiences to the local community. We will confirm more details about our move in due course however, in the meantime please be assured it is business as usual and our centre in Whittle-le- Woods will continue to welcome families for Play, Birthday Parties, Childcare, Laser Tag, Teddy Tastic and Events until the middle of 2019”. Cheeky Monkeys recently received a national award, the Silver title of FEC (Family Entertainment Centre) of the Year 2017 at the National BALPPA Awards held at Drayton Manor Theme Park in Staffordshire. The Awards were attended by hundreds of other FEC’s across England, Wales and Scotland. BALPPA (The British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions) hosts the annual awards for the Play Industry, Recognising Excellence. They are designed to provide a focal point in the indoor play calendar and unite the sector recognising those operators who are making great leaps, taking the industry forward and operating outstanding centres. Cheeky Monkey’s beat many other Play and Family entertainment centres up and down the country and were awarded the title for their contribution to the industry, excellent customer service, cleanliness and facilities. We at Friends of Buckshaw Village and Green Man Marketing would like to wish our friends at Cheeky Monkeys the very best wishes with their future plans. We look forward to telling you all about it!
