IDEAS on how facilities in Locking can be improved are being sought at an event on June 28.

The ideas jam will be held at The Coach House in Manor Gardens, and organiser Stuart Hayward says he wants villagers to come together to share their ideas on what they want to see in the village.

The idea for the event came from Locking Parish Council’s call for people to say how youth facilities could be improved in the area, and Mr Hayward has decided to expand that idea into every aspect of village life.

Mr Hayward, who is running the event under the name of Locking To The Future, said he has been in contact with Weston Centre Of Gravity (COG), a community group set up to find ways of improving community facilities in the resort, about setting up the scheme.

He said: “The idea is to see what is good about the village, and what can be improved. “The meeting might come up with a major problem that we need to address, or smaller issues that can be sorted within a few days.

“It’s also giving people the opportunity to meet others from the village who they don’t know, and that can only be a good thing.”

The meeting will start at 7.30pm.

You can follow Locking To The Future on Facebook or Twitter, or email Mr Hayward at lockingtothefuture@gmail.com for more information.
