Quirky Fence on William Edward Street Longueville Goes Up in Fire
The Quirky/Crazy fence on William Edward Street Longueville went up in smoke last Saturday. The cause of the fire is not known. However, it does look like it started inside the property. This fence really is a dividing fence – you either love it or hate it.

New Bus Timetable Changes Puts Extra Burden on Lane Cove Interchange
The combination of the new bus timetable changes and some buses no longer going into the city has put severe pressure on the Lane Cove bus interchange. Two different roving reporters sent in these photos. One roving reporter waited 20 minutes from 8:20am to 8:40am to get on a bus. During that time 3 buses arrived 2 of which were at least 75% full! What is your experience? Please let us know.
Lane Cove Junior Rugby Club Launches Touch Footy Club
Last Friday, Blackman Park Oval came alive with the Touch Footy. This comp offers boys, girls, mums and dads the opportunity to play touch rugby in a social setting. LCJRU believes this will drive participation across all ages and provide a great platform from which they can develop players into the 15-man game. It is all very civilized with a Ladies Lawn Area for after games drinks and dinner sponsored by Zjoosh.
This is also a fundraiser for the redevelopment of the Tantallon Oval. LCJRU have worked with the Lane Cove Council to develop a plan to upgrade the facilities at Tantallon Oval that will see significant works undertaken on the grandstand. This development will include a full upgrade to the toilets and a major overhaul of the grandstand that will see a club house/shared community facility being built. You can help with this upgrade by making a donation.
Yet again, there was another accident on River Road West – this time near the Greenwich Hospital.
Magpie Swooping is in full force at the moment and the most complained about spot is Karilla Avenue – so be on the lookout – find out more here.
