Welcome to Lyng
Lyng Community Association is proud to be at the heart of West Bromwich’s flagship residential development. We’re providing 200 high quality homes for affordable rent, as well as building a community spirit to make the Lyng a vibrant place to live.
We’re a not-for-profit organisation set up after a group of pioneering local people united to redevelop the old Lyng estate by creating homes fit for modern living, as well as fantastic open spaces.
Now is an exciting time in the history of the Lyng as we shape our thriving community, keeping our focus on sustainable regeneration and local empowerment.

Great Lyng Bake Off Triumph for Katy!
Lyng resident, Katy Donaldson, has been named as the Great Lyng Bake Off champion!
For the past seven weeks, residents have been cooking up a treat during our brand new Cake Decorating course at the Church of the Good Shepherd with St John. The course culminated in a special Great Lyng Bake Off competition when six residents showed off their new skills by making Christmas trees out of home-baked cookies and edible decorations.
Chairman of the LCA Board, Wendy Bodenham, and Wendy Bent from The GAP Centre judged the festive creations and declared Katy’s chocolate tree as the winner for the snappiness of her cookies and her icing skills!

NEW BOARD MEMBER WANTED
Lyng Community Association is looking for a dedicated volunteer to join the Board and play a vital role in ensuring the Lyng continues to be a happy and vibrant place for tenants to live. LCA’s Board is made up of 50 per cent residents and 50 per cent interested people from the wider community with useful specialist skills.
The ideal candidate doesn’t need to be a tenant and or even to live on the Lyng estate itself. However, the Association is looking for someone who is, ideally, financially qualified and who has a genuine interest in making a contribution to the Lyng community.
Although this position is a voluntary one, applicants can be assured that their contribution to the Lyng estate will be very highly regarded and appreciated.
To find out more, contact Tony Nash on 0121 525 5969.
