Safety Advice

Darker evenings can give burglars an opportunity to easily see which houses are unoccupied. Here are a few things you might like to consider to lessen the chance of your house being targeted:

Development at the Lakes

Regular users of The Lakes will have experienced a series of interruptions since the summer. This has been caused by contractors carrying out essential works, intended to improve the Lakes experience in the longer term.

First off, during August, were the repairs to the Ice House. The interior has been cleared of the rubbish which had filled up the interior, repairs have been carried out to deal with cracking of the structure, and the interior has been fitted out as a safe environment for bats. Over the next few months volunteers will restore the look of the exterior, and hopefully we will be able to work out a safe way to show off the ice house interior to the public at large.
