Plater Group has a number of different community initiatives and involvements.
Lancashire Chemicals holds quarterly meetings with local residents and councillors. This community liaison group acts as an excellent forum for all parties to talk about the company, its plans for the future and dealing with any resident concerns or complaints.
From this group, Lancashire Chemicals has now sponsored two science days at their local Dinting Primary School which have been enthusiastically welcomed by the children and staff at the school. It is hoped that this will be a a regular annual event in the school’s calendar:

Lichfield Ladies RFU Player Georgia Bradley
Georgia Bradley is a law student at Nottingham Trent University and a member of Lichfield Ladies Rugby Club, who play in the Premier Division of the Ladies Rugby league. In the summer of 2017, Plater Chemicals sponsored Georgia to attend a Seven's tournament in Valencia with a team called Mo Sista's who competed in the women's elite competition. The team was made up of Dutch and English international players alongside some invitational players. They placed third - a great achievement given the calibre of the players.
