Lane Cove News Week in Review 17th to 23rd March 2019

This week was dominated by wall to wall election news and democracy snags.

NSW State Election Lane Cove Results 2019

Lane Cove returned Anthony Roberts for the four more years.  Will he remain as the Planning Minister or will he take on another portfolio?

On Saturday, ITC visited quite a few polling booths in the Lane Cove electorate. Nice to see democracy in action. We have to report the cake stall has taken over the democracy sausage in the Lane Cove Electorate.  Greenwich Public School and Mowbray Public School went for both Cakes and the BBQ and were very popular.  Well done to all the people in all schools and churches that baked cakes and volunteered.  ITC has spent the weekend eating all the delicious cakes purchased from several polling booths (ps if you made that chocolate caramel slice at Mowbray Public School you are a LEGEND).

Stunning Skies

The Lane Cove sky has been putting on a show at dusk. Roving Reporter and ITC Sponsor @kyliedunlopphotography snapped this stunning photo at the @lcjru jersey night on Friday Night.

A Roving Reporter (aka Dee the Crazy Bag Lady) shared this video with ITC.


Lane Cove 50m Outdoor Pool

Demolition of the Lane Cove Pool is underway. Lane Cove Council is currently anticipating the construction of the pool will take approximately 18 months however firmer details on timing will be known at the end of April once LCC has heard back from potential suppliers.


One of Lane Cove’s oldest trees was cut down this week after two independent arborist reports found the tree located in Central Park (near the Lane Cove Tennis Club and Yogabowl) was dangerous.  More trees are due to be removed along River Road (you may have seen yellow notices on the trees as you drive up River Road towards Northwood)


Lane Cove Dining

It’s Lane Cove Dining week and 9 of Lane Cove’s top restaurants are participating in an ITC initiative to encourage people to dine locally.  You could a $100 dining voucher  just by taking a photo of your meal this week and uploading it to social media with the tag #lanecovedining, @inthecove and the name of the restaurant you dined in.  Dining week ends at midnight on Saturday 30th March 2019.  Further details here.

Incidents and Accidents

ITC is still receiving reports of car break-ins across Lane Cove.  Remember to lock your car at night and don’t leave any valuables in your car.

On Monday morning the Lane Cove Golf Course had a new temporary hazard.  A car drove off River Road and ended up at the bottom of a creek.  It was not an easy job to retrieve the car and a large crane was used to lift the car.

Upcoming Events

Lane Cove Historical Society

The Lane Cove Historical Society would love to see you at their meeting on Tuesday night. Bring along one of your favourite historical pieces for show and tell. It could be one of your favourite Lane Cove pictures, a trophy or some memorabilia you love.

Lane Cove Theatre Company Churchill’s Gallipoli – a new play by Gordon Parker

A play-reading event Saturday 30th March 7.30pm – free admission

Winston Churchill did not just have the depressive “Black Dog” but a more gravid psychiatric condition – bipolar disorder (or manic depression). His hitherto unexplored illness influenced world events for seventy years. Its contribution to the fateful outcome of the Dardanelles/Gallipoli campaign is able to be explored in this high-energy play. It melds The King’s Speech and Lincoln genres with a voice of intensity, humour and poignancy. Bookings

Week in Review – Xchange Air and Sub Floor Damp

Our Week in Review is sponsored by Xchange Air.  You may have noticed that we are having a bit of rain lately.  Rain = sub floor damp. This is where Xchange Air can help you.

Sick of spending a fortune on damp absorbers and running dehumidifiers only to still have pesky mould spreading across your walls and ceilings? To remove mould, you need to address the real cause. And that cause for most homes is sub floor damp, leading to mould and mildew inside the home.
