Welcome to our Lane Cove Weekly Review for 29 May to 4 June 2017.

Lost and Found Listings Galore, Farewell to a Lane Cove Legend and Happy Birthday to a Lane Cove Institution – this is our week in review.

Reconciliation Week

Reconciliation Week continued this week with Children’s Voices for Reconciliation in the Lane Cove Plaza. Celebrating its 21st year, this combined schools performance celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and Reconciliation. It was a lovely morning of entertainment where young people of all ages celebrated Reconciliation through music, dance, and song. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The 1967 Referendum, this year’s event featured performances inspired by the theme Reconcile.


Farewell to a Lane Cove Legend

Lane Cove legend Kerri Parkinson Aqua Presenter and Instructor is retiring and moving to New Zealand. Her fabulous band of AQUA followers threw her a huge party to say farewell at the Lane Cove Golf Club. They do not want her to go but wish her bon voyage and thank her for her 15 years teaching Aqua Aerboics at the Lane Cove Aquatic Centre.

Cove Craft Celebrates 40 Years in Lane Cove

The talented crafters from Cove Craft Celebrated 40 Years in Lane Cove.  Cove Craft is a tiny shop squashed between the TAB and Unwined Bar, opposite the Post Office in Lane Cove.  They are all about handmade objects.  This week the following was posted on our Facebook Page about Cove Craft:

Just bought a beautiful Layette set at Cove Craft. What a lovely little shop for beautiful handmade things. It is also very reasonably priced – the layette set was $50 for a gorgeous cardigan, beanie/bonnet and booties. All hand knitted with 100% wool. I also found out they are celebrating 40 years and is the longest serving shop in Lane Cove.

The crafters held a party at the Lane Cove Living and Learning Centre and Eva (who has been a member for 40 years) cut the cake.


Musical Lane Cove

Well done to the Lane Cove Public School Senior Concert Band for winning 1st Place in the Senior Category of the Ryde East Music Festival that was held on Sunday. Way to go guys!!!!

Local Derby

The Annual Riverview v Joeys Rugby Match was held this weekend.  Joeys won the game.  Traffic after the game is always a nightmare and Police were on point duty at Burns Bay and Tambourine Road after the game.

Real Estate

 Want to live where some Wiggles have lived?? Married Wiggles, Lachlan and Emma, are selling their apartment located near the border of the Lane Cove Council Area in Wollstonecraft. The sales agent is Desiree Hough, from Desiree Hough & Chris Keane – Stone Real Estate Lane Cove and the house was open for inspection this weekend.

Lost and Found

A Big week of Lost and Found – check out our listings here.  This week, for some reason, ITC was inundated with Lost Bunnies.  Firstly, who knew there were so many rabbits in Lane Cove? Secondly, did you know you can microchip your bunny?

Nothing to report this week, other than a minor bingle at the corner of River Road/Northwood/Longueville Road.
