LRA E-Newsletter #1

With community comes happiness

The Lynbrook Residents Association is very excited to bring you our very first LRA E-Newsletter. We hope to bring you a regular E-Newsletter to help keep you up to date with what's going on in YOUR community.

We not only want to bring information to you but we also want to hear back from you.

You can e-mail us directly or get in touch via our web-site

Have a strange sense of Déjà vu? Don't worry, it's not you, it's us. We're sending this E-Newsletter out a second time due to a bug that caused the one sent out last night to display incorrectly. We apologise for this and thank you for baring with us as we get to grips with producing E-Newsletters for the first time.

Mailbox flier ...

You may have recently received one of our fliers in the mailbox recently in which we've provided you with the dates of our upcoming Lynbrook Moonlight Cinema showings. On the reverse of this flier is lots of useful information regarding our web-site, Here, you can find tons of information that will be very useful to Lynbrook residents (see below for more details).

In the news this month ...

In the news this month, the LRA has been discussing the intersection of South Gippsland Highway & Lynbrook Boulevard with the Department of Public Transport & Roads and also with VicRoads. Recent near misses with fast-moving city-bound trucks at this intersection have prompted the LRA to see whether hazard warning lights can be installed to try to render the intersection safer. We received an initial response from the minister, which can be found in the News section on our web-site here, but we will continue to press the issue further on your behalf.

Moonlight Cinema Success ...

This Summer, the LRA has been busy organising our inaugural season of the Lynbrook Moonlight Cinema for local residents. With your support, we've been able to purchase our very own screen, projector and other equipment and we hope to continue to run these Summer events for years to come. With the huge successes of The Lorax in November, Arthur Christmas in December and the Wizard of Oz this past Australia Day, we're really starting to get the hang of things.

Back to school ...

Back to school. Please be vigilant on the roads - especially between drop-off and pick-up times!
With the Summer school break now over and the kids all back at school, the neighbouring streets are fuller than usual. We'd like to remined all road users to please be extra vigilent on the roads - particularly during the morning drop-off (8:30-9:15) and afternoon pick-up times (2.45-3.30). Some schools have limited parking capacity and are best avoided during these times due to excessive conjestion.
