This will be our 9th Big Lunch on Lockner. This year the theme is all things carnival, so we can expect Notting Hill vibes, plenty for the children and Lorenzos famous jerk.
Feel free to bring along some food to share, chairs, tables – anything you like (or just your self, no pressure!).
If you have any energy or time on the morning we will be setting up in the GREEN park (each park has different coloured railings) from 11am and any extra hands would be much appreciated.

Resident Led Improvement Budget Walkabout

We are given a fund every year from the council to spend on estate improvements, the majority of this is billed to leaseholders. These can be anything from bike locking areas, planters to playground improvements.
There is a “walk about” the estate on Monday 9th July at 11.15, meet at the community flat, 23 Blandford court.The walkabout is for council reps and residents, for us to give them a “wish list” of what improvements we would like to see.
Please attend if you have any requests or ideas.

Competition Time!

Come Dine with me – on Lockner

Do you like cooking and entertaining? Like your neighbours or would you like to get to know more?
We are organising a “come dine with me” experience here on Lockner Estate. The idea being that you host a supper in your home for a small group – and hosting is rotated within that small group. No pressure to do 3 courses – we could even do a “Safari dinner” where we move to a different course with a different host.
If you’re interested, and would like to be involved – reply to this email with “come dine with me” in the heading and we will create a small email group to coordinate.
This could be a lovely fun way to meet neighbours and boost our community here on Lockner.

Pets of Lockner

Do you live on the Locker Estate and have an adorable furry friend?

If so, we want to hear from you. Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, lizards … We want to run a feature for our website about all the various creatures who live on Locker. No matter how big or small!

If you’d like to take part, send an email to LocknerTRA@gmail.com with ‘pets’ in the subject line. We’ll get in touch to arrange an appointment with Tom, our pet photographer and interviewer.

We’ll put these together for a feature on our site. So if you’ve got a pet, why not take part? And if you don’t, stay tuned to find out more about your four-legged neighbours.

Next Meeting

Date for your diary – Wednesday 25th April will be our rescheduled AGM. It will be held at 7pm in the community flat, 23 Blandford court.

The AGM is the most important meeting of the year. We need to get a quorum (minimum number of people attending) to be a registered association.

If you appreciate things like the Big Lunch, the Christmas Panto and having a voice with the council over housing matters – please come along.

Please support us so we can carry on supporting life on Lockner for us all.
