Welcome to our Lane Cove Week in Review, for 25 to 31 July 2016

The Great Plate Debate

ITC recently had brunch at Cafe Geo in Lane Cove North, and we blogged about it HERE. Well, this blog caused quite a stir, with many of you commenting about your dislike of being served meals on wooden boards as opposed to plates. What say you – food on wooden boards, yay or nay?!

Nick is Back

Much excitement this week, as Nick (who used to own Aristocrat Cafe) is back from overseas and has taken over Sircus Cafe with his business partner and chef Kevin. They have new coffee, from Di Lorenzo. A new menu and renovations coming soon!

Reuniting the Lost Pets of Lane Cove

ITC earned a new personal best during the week, when we reunited cutie lost dog Lola within 12 minutes of her being reported missing – that’s how amazing the power of local community can be!

Exotic Visitors to Longueville

During the week we have an email from a local, with news of some special visitors.

Whilst chatting with 2 sulphur crested cockatoos recently on my deck at Longueville, we were joined by their visiting relatives from New Guinea. Blue eyed cockatoos are extremely rare in their natural habitat let alone in Longueville!

Led me to think they may have escaped captivity somewhere a little closer than just slightly south of the Equator.

Jazz at the Lane Cove Bowling Club

Live music came to the Lane Cove Bowling on Wednesday evening, with their first jazz night, featuring Delta Jazz. One club member who attended the evening sent us this photo, and said it was a great night.

Poor Parking of the Week

Thanks to a regular Roving Reporter for this photo taken in the Coles car park. Talk about inconsiderate!

Footpath Flooding

On Thursday a Roving Reporter sent is this picture and said “Here’s what’s going on in Johnston Crescent with the new footpath building…  Sydney Water due out “soon”. Looks like The eastern end of Johnston Crescent may well be without water til fixed… “.

Fingers crossed the water was sorted before bath time!

Stop Press

All of a sudden, mid-week, The Junction appeared in the plaza.

The rumoured deli, also coming to the plaza, now seems like it will be less deli and more American Cafe/Restaurant, Artisan Brooklyn. Bring it.
