A day to celebrate Lock

A workshop and dinner will be hosted at Lock later this month that focuses the revitalisation of the community.

The Lock Revitalisation Workshop will take place at the Lock Community Sports Centre on Tuesday, February 21, before a dinner at the Lock Hotel, and is a chance to celebrate the community.

The workshop and dinner was made possible through a grant from the Department of Primary Industries and Regions' Connecting Drought Communities program.

The evening will be facilitated by Ray Smith, the general manager of the Shire of Bland in New South Wales.

Elliston District Council executive assistant Jill Leonard said it was a "feelgood" event after a difficult period and a way to collaborate to drive the community forward.

"A key focus will be to lift the township of Lock, which has seen people leaving, drought and businesses closing," she said.

"It will be a feelgood evening, but there will also be a bit of involvement with the Lock draft master plan which is being worked on.

"The event is a catalyst for driving change and bringing the community together."

She said items including the beautifying of streets, creation of walking and bike trails and upgrading the caravan park were being discussed for the master plan.

The workshop will run from 2pm to 5pm, with the dinner at 6pm.

Attendance for the event is limited due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements.
