Lane Cove Week in Review – 24 to 30 Oct 2016

Welcome to our Lane Cove Week in Review, for 24 to 30 October 2016.

This week Lane Cove came alive with the Lane Cove Night Out.

Lane Cove Night Out

Over 500 people enjoyed the stalls and live music in the Plaza at the Lane Cove Night Out  – we’d love to hear how you found the night. Please let us know how the Lane Cove Council can improve the event.  This event gets bigger  every year.  We will pass on your comments to the Lane Cove Council.  You can email your comments here.  Thank you to everyone who purchased a Lane Cove Tea Towel – we will be donating another $50 to the Lane Cove and Northside Community Service.  If you really want a Lane Cove Tea Towel, they are available at the Burns Bay Bookery.  If you want a black tea towel you better head over there soon as they are the only ones with black left at the moment.

Funnel Web Season

Just a reminder that Funnel Web season has officially started. We have already had reports of Funnel Web sightings in Lane Cove – including this picture.  You can find out more here.

Delvena Needs Bed Linen

Delvena Women’s Refuge contacted ITC this week, with a request for New Single and Double Bed sheets. If you can help please email us. Read our blog to see what else you can do. Please note that Delvena would love to take more donations (like kids clothes and toys) but they have limited space – so they are working with ITC to put a call out when they need specific items, such as sheets.  If you would like to know more about Delvena you can find out more here.

Lane Cove Author releases a beautifully Illustrated Children’s Book – TWIG

Aura Parker – Lane Cove’s very own brilliantly talented illustrator, designer and artist – is now a
published author to boot! Her beautiful picture book “Twig” has arrived at Burns Bay Bookery – it’s utterly gorgeous.  You can find out more about Aura Parker at
You can also find her occasionally wandering around Lane Cove with her lovely family…..or with her sister in law, who together run Studio Bonnie.


Neighbourhood Support

This week a Lane Cove Mum had a scary experience – but everyone at Riverview Shops (aka Yorks Corner) rallied around and helped her out. She wanted them to know the following:

“To all the Mummies and wonderful man Alan at Yorks Corner this morning HUGE THANKS!! My toddler locked herself in the car and you all helped so much. Keeping us all calm. Alan for driving me home to pick up the spare keys, those that looked after my daughter who was in the car and son outside. You are all legends! Ps. Hope your kids got a kick out of the police & fire engines arriving. They came so fast…amazing! Truly felt today that we live in the best hood #inthecove #whatagreatbunch !”

Burst Water Pipes

This week, for the second time in a matter of days, there a water pipe burst near St Michaels Church and School on Longueville Road.  There was also a major water disruption on Burns Bay Road this week.


Crime Report

A house in Centennial Avenue was broken into this week. They used a crow bar to “open” a window. They were only looking for jewellery (might be a good idea to find a hiding place) or get a safe Alert Locks & Security Lane Cove

The North Shore LAC also reported the following break ins:

* Gore Street, GREENWICH
Between 4:00pm on Friday 21st October and 12:00 on Sunday 23rd October

* Penrose Street, LANE COVE

Last week we reported on an accident at Northwood Road –  here is the official police statement:

Around 12:45am on Saturday 15th October a 40 year old male from Lane Cove drove his Blue Audi North West along Northwood Road Longueville towards the intersection of Kenneth Street. At the time, the driver has failed to stay on the road and as a result, has collided with a traffic light pole at the location. The driver has then continued to travel north for approximately 75 metres with the traffic light pole situated on top of the vehicle. The driver has crossed to the opposite side of River Road before coming to a stop.

Residents near the location heard the collision and contacted police.

Around 1:00am police attended the location and spoke with the driver. He was submitted him to a breath test however, he allegedly would not provide a proper sample of breath for the test. The driver was arrested and conveyed back to Chatswood Police Station. He was submitted to a breath analysis which returned a reading of 0.234 grams of alcohol.

The drivers licence was immediately confiscated and he is required to appear in Hornsby Local Court next month charged with Drive with high range PCA – 1st offence.
