Our Roving Reporters were on the ball again last month. We could not run In the Cove without you – keep up the good work. You have eyes all over Lane Cove!!!

(Belatedly) announcing our May Roving Reporter of the Month is:  Matlida Lamb

Back in May, Matilda contacted us about some tree vanadlism that had occured in Lane Cove North. Matilda told us:

“Sad news about Kingsford Smith Park on Ulm St behind Mowbray Public School.

Three 40+yr old beautiful gum trees have been deliberately poisoned (see drill hole in picture). The council is investigating the issue and have been watering extensively each day to try and dilute the soil but it’s not looking like they will recover.

The trees provided shade for children playing in the park and contributed to the famous bush landscape of Lane Cove North. They are now a risk due to falling branches and slippery leaves.”


Our winning Roving Reporter receives a $50 voucher to a Lane Cove business listed in our business directory.  Previous month’s winners have selected the Burns Bay Bookery and Hummerston’s Gourmet Meats.

Please PM us your details and let us know the name of your favourite business in our business directory.

Keep up the good work roving reporters we truly appreciate it.
