It is a small town with a very big heart. Everyone works together to get projects done. 16 years ago, when the only fuel station closed, the town got together and purchased the building. Run by volunteers we still sell fuel and now the building also houses the Community Bank, Neighbourhood House, Men’s shed, Laundry, Op Shop and next door is the community garden.
Our hotel is about to close, so again the town has rallied, and it will soon commence trading as a Co-Op with over 100 community members being involved. Whenever there is a need, at either a personal level or community level – the town is there for you
Photo is of a vacant block of land in the main street of Lockington the town uses for all types of community activities. In this picture, the community used the land for a scare crow competition and to brighten up the street.
