Meet your MLAs; LCA AGM

Meet some of your local Kurrajong MLAs on Sunday 15 April at 2pm at the Guide Hall, 44 Clianthus St O’Connor.

This will be followed by the Lyneham Community Association’s Annual General Meeting. Come along and find out what we’ve been up to in 2017, and help guide what the LCA does in 2018. Don’t fear being roped onto the committee: nominations have been received for all positions.

Refreshments will be provided following the AGM. Come along and join us.

End of year get-together

Come and celebrate the end of another year and looking forward to the holidays.

If you can’t come along, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable end to your year and a positive start to the new year. We look forward to seeing you again in 2018!

Finally, thank you to all those who have contributed to the Lyneham Community Association this year. We achieved lots for Lyneham, starting with the wonderful Summer Soiree in February, Light Up Lyneham in July, stall at Lyneham Primary School Fete in October, engagement with Government about a range of Lyneham issues throughout the year, a survey and gathering of ideas for improving Lyneham, and much more.

See you at the celebration or in the new year.

Community Input at Lyneham Primary Fete

Great to see so many people engaged with future possibilities for Lyneham Oval and the wider area. The Lyneham Community Association had a steady stream of people at our stall at the fete, keen to add their ideas to our maps and to chat about their suggestions for improvements to the district. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

ideas

Here are the ideas we received (some more than once, and in no particular order):

  • Community vegetable gardens, shared between schools and community (between LPS and creek)
  • BMX trail for little kids
  • More trees (between LPS and creek)
  • BBQ and shelter shed (opposite Lyneham Commons)
  • Planting and seating at the shops. More murals!
  • Fitness stations along the creak (between Mouat St and the LPS-LHS bike path)
  • Roundabout at intersection of Goodwin and Wattle
  • Sculptures in the pond and surrounds at Lyneham wetlands
  • Q: is the wetlands pump functional? properly maintained? is the biotype destroyed when the pond is emptied?
  • Upgrade De Burgh St playground (more shade needed)
  • Reclaim Sullivans Creek (between Mouat St and LPS-LHS bike path). That is, get rid of the concrete and make it appear natural.
  • More tree plantings in area east of creek just south of Mouat St.
  • Fenced in off-leash dog park in area east of creek just south of Mouat St.
  • Better drop-off zone along Brigalow St for LPS
  • Public playground and gazebo (on oval near Brigalow St and LPS)
  • Soccer field on oval
  • Upgrade oval (not so much to competition level, but for informal activities)
  • Walking loop around oval (viz Harrison Park)
  • Lighting for oval
  • Safer crossing for children at intersection of Longstaff and Lewin
  • More play equipment at Magpie Hill (already good, could improve)
  • Reactivate BBQ at North Lyneham park
  • Footpath through to Swindon St (near Hockey Centre) from Light Rail stop on Northbourne near Netball Centre
  • Fix and revive North Lyneham Oval. Currently not fit for use except dogs pooing.
  • Need an Access Centre (especially for older residents)

Feel free to add your ideas, or comment on those above…
