The Election

On Saturday we had the difficult decision of deciding which polling station to go to, based on whether there was going to be a sausage sizzle and/or cake stall.

A brave Roving Reporter did the sausage sizzle rounds, and shared his vote HERE.

Locals in the Media

If you watch the TV show Shark Tank, you may have spotted Lane Cove local, and jewellery creator Maria, asking the Sharks to invest in her business Maria Nicola, to help her promote her unique 10 Way Necklace. Well, the huge news is, she got a YES from one of the Sharks! You can read more about her experience HERE.

During the week ITC meet up with some of the gang from Bespoke Catering, who are located at Northwood Shops. We may have sampled one or two (or eight) of their to-die-for chocolate brownies #wedidntquitsugar

New Childcare Centre

Work started this week on the old Mandalay site on the corner of Burns Bay and Tambourine Bay Roads, to change the premises into a childcare centre.

Another Reason We Love Lane Cove

Thanks to a Roving Reporter for sending us this photo of Hazel McNamara from Allen Estate Agents Lane Cove.  They said “Hi, Just thought you would be interested in posting a feel good story. I turned up late to inspect a property in Elizabeth Parade today and found the agent, Hazel McNamara from Allen Estate Agents, busy vacuuming the floor for the owner, who had recently had a fall. Obviously an agent who cares about her clients.”

Stop Press

You might want to sit down for this…. Bakers Delight has closed for refurbishment!! They are due to reopen on Thursday 21 July. We are a little concerned about how the local Finger Bun addicts are going to cope!

Crime Report

This week’s North Shore LAC Crime Report:-

Assault – Lane Cove

Around 5.10pm on Monday 27th June a 39 year old female was walking along a foot path on Longueville Road, heading towards Little Street. At the time, she was talking on her mobile phone. It is at this time that the female was approached by an unknown male described as mid 50’s with grey/sandy hair, unshaven wearing a maroon hoodie and maroon coloured tracksuit pants. Without warning, the male has punched the female in the face and proceeded to walk off without saying anything. The female followed the unknown male and had a conversation with him before the male walked away.
