Lane Cove Week in Review 6th October to 12th October 2019

Lane Cove Rotary Village Fair

The Lane Cove Rotary Fair and Sustainability Lane went off today with over 12 000 people descending on the Lane Cove Village.  The rain stayed away and by mid-afternoon the sun was shining.  The Lane Cove Village Fair is loved by young and old.  It’s always on the second Sunday in October so put the date in your diary for next year.  Well done to Lane Cove Rotary and the Lane Cove Council for such a great event.  It was lovely to meet so many In the Cove followers.  Thank you for your kind words.

Check out the Horns Plus Big Band – they were amazing.

Lane Cove Fire Station

This week, ITC was so lucky to spend a day with these four amazing and dedicated local firefighters. You would not believe what they pack into a day. ITC was with them from 8 am to around 2.30 pm and they were called out 8 times (each time was a false alarm). They also did two training sessions, made sure all their equipment was ready to go and still had a smile on their face. Can’t wait to tell you more in our article on the Lane Cove Fire Station (which is situated in Artarmon). Great guys at Fire and Rescue NSW Station 061 Lane Cove

Criminal Syndicate charged – Artarmon

Police have charged 3 women from South Sydney who they believe are responsible for a range of offences in the North Shore area dating back to January this year.

Police have been investigating a number of incidents of mail theft at apartment blocks in Chatswood that occurred in January and August of this year. Police will allege that around 12:15am Sunday 6th October plain clothes police observed the 3 women enter a unit block on Cleland Street Artarmon. Police observed the women enter a vehicle and drive away from the location. Police stopped the vehicle a short time late where they searched the women and the contents of the vehicle.

It will be alleged that bank cards belonging to 19 different people were located along with passports, drivers licences, birth certificates and other identity documents as well as an amount of what police believe to be the drug ‘Ice’.

The 3 women were arrested and taken to Chatswood Police Station where they were each charged with a range of offences including larceny and participating in a criminal group. All 3 were refused bail to appear before Hornsby Local Court later this month.
