Because the gate padlocks had become increasingly unreliable they were all replaced yesterday.

KEYS: All existing keys should work. Please leave a message here if yours doesn’t.

STIFFNESS: The new padlocks can be a bit stiff to close. They need a firm push. We are working to make the mechanisms smoother. Please bear with us!

    We have two keys. One works perfectly – the other is a real struggle but worked on the old padlock. Only tried on the Howard Street end gate next to 66 Cricket Road.

      I had a struggle with the gate near the main shop. My key did work in the end but it is not easy. Nor is it easy to close the lock afterwards. And since we found it unlocked when leaving, I guess that others are having problems too. Do they need oiling?

    Had a mild panic that I was locked in this eve! Managed to get the Cricket Road (Howard street end) lock open eventually – Found the trick is to pull the key out ever so slightly and it just clicked open.
