Following the criticism of the town in the Grayson Perry: All man documentary we look at reasons to love Skem.
The Grayson Perry: All man documentary has caused a huge backlash in Skelmersdale, with many locals criticising the programme's portrayal of the New Town. While Skem does have its problems, like any UK town, there are also a lot of things to love about Skelmersdale. We at Visiter.
People of Skelmersdale are some of the most generous and community minded in the UK. In the documentary Perry spoke to people who told of residents generosity and their willingness to give away their last tenner to someone who really needed it. This certainly rings true as the people of Skelmersdale raised thousands of pounds for Millie Heaton, during her battle with cancer.
When plans for the Whitemoss Hazardous Waste expansion were unveiled hundreds of people came out in protest, with a campaign group quickly formed to organise events to raise money and awareness of the cause. The town is home to a growing of high performing UK and international businesses which are committed to, and passionate about Skelmersdale.
A new film warning young people about the dangers of getting involved in gang culture was recently commissioned and will be shown in schools across the borough. The film aims to ensure teenagers and even younger children are more informed on this subject and to deter them away from becoming involved in organised crime. Plans for a n ew high street are also in progress, with plans to regenerate the Concourse shopping centre also in advanced stages.
Both of these will ensure Skelmersdale is able to compete with nearby towns such as Wigan and Southport. Skelmersdale has no traffic lights and is made up of roundabouts including one of Europe's biggest, what an amazing fact. The largest of Skem's roundabouts - dubbed the 'Hope Island' features a multi-geometric shape with a flower in the centre and is named the Gateway artwork - a tribute to cancer sufferers. The artwork is part of a larger roundabout artwork scheme called The Elements and also includes a big cuboid with fibre optic flashing lights which dazzles in the darkness.

With three hundred acres of open countryside, an hole golf course with golf and leisure shopcountryside displays and exhibitions, guided walks, craft fairs Tawd Valley Park is a hidden jewel in the heart of Skelmersdale. The site surrounds the River Tawd as it meanders its way from Yewdale across a large section of the historic town of Skelmersdale through to Cobbs Clough Brow.
You often see birds of prey soaring above the meadows and Kingfishers, Dippers and Wagtails patrolling the river banks.
