Following the fires that destroyed the Moria refugee camp, a charity called Choose Love is organising collections for desperately needed hygiene supplies.

If you would like to help, please drop donations from the following list only to Eloise at No. 2 Stratton Court by Friday 2nd October. Eloise will be taking all donations to a drop-off point on Saturday 3rd.

These are the items that are most needed right now, so please do only bring items from the list:

Nappies, toothpaste, roll-on deodorant, shampoo, shower gel, and soap.
If you can’t source any donations before the 2nd October but still want to help, you can still buy nappies and basic wash bags for refugees and displaced people from the Choose Love store – just go to

Due to popular demand the Lockner Bootcamp will now be WEEKLY, every Sunday and FREE for residents. If you’d like to come please get in touch to be added to the group. The class is for all ages, all abilities and all genders!

Estate Improvements

Every year we are given a pot of money from the council to improve Lockner. It’s called the The Resident Led Improvement Budget (RLIB). It can be spent to improve Lockner re-doing fencing or painting railings, planting trees or starting a community garden. The only limitations are that it has to benefit all living on Lockner, and your imagination!

There will be a “walkabout” on Monday 20th April at 11.15am (meet outside the community flat 23 Blandford Court) with the council people running the RLIB. During this time we quite literally walk about with them talking them through and showing them our wish list.

More information can be found about the budget here.

If you are unable to make the meeting and have any ideas, you can email them to us or pop a note through the community flat door (23 Blandford Court) so we can be sure your voice is heard!
