Lane Cove News Week in Review 1st to 7th December 2019

    Christmas has arrived in Lane Cove.  The biggest Christmas present for Lane Cove residents and businesses was the opening of The Canopy car park.  If you need to know anything about Christmas in Lane Cove, go to the Christmas section on our website here.

    The lighting of the Christmas Tree

    The Lane Cove Plaza was packed on Friday 6th December 2019 as the Christmas Tree in the plaza was officially lit up.  The big attraction was a giant snow globe.

    The People’s Night – 10th December 2019

    We are also encouraging everyone to put aside December 10th ass a night to sit outside with a container and collect money for Bushfire relief.  Ditch the car and walk around the lights in your neighbourhood. Meet your neighbours and drop a gold coin donation into their collection box.

    The People’s Choice Awarded will be decided by a Facebook Poll – vote here.

    Thank you to Rebecca Mitchell of Raine & Horne Lane Cove for being our major sponsor. Without Rebecca stepping in to provide prize money and to cover costs, Lane Cove Christmas Lights would not have happened.

    The Canopy Car Park is OPEN


    The Canopy Car Park is now open.  Take a tour with In the Cove.


    Reverse Vending Machine in Little Street Car Park

    The Reverse Vending Machine has been installed in Little Street Carpark and will be operational on Monday 9th December.

    Greenwich Carols

    Fabulous night at the Greenwich Christmas Carols organised by Harbourline Real Estate. Over 200 people sang Carols and had a great time. The BBQ was run by Lane Cove Rotary There was the Greenwich Public School School recorder group, School parents choir, local cubs group, and more. All money raised went to Youth Off the Streets

    Windy and Smoky

    Wow, it was windy earlier on in the week – this tree came down on Lucretia Avenue in Longueville.

    Lane Cove Pool

    The Lane Cove Pool was filled with water to test the structure.

    Council is collecting funds to transport more than 1 million litres of water from its 50m outdoor pool to drought-stricken areas in NSW.

    Council is currently in the deep-end of construction of a new outdoor pool, and as part of the site safety testing, the pool was required to be filled with water and emptied. Instead of disposing of the water down the drain, Council dived right in to arrange for the water to be accepted by organisations in Armidale, NSW. The water will be used to assist firefighters and farmers with livestock.

    Make a splash by donating to help Council fund the transport of the water from Lane Cove to Armidale. If all goes swimmingly, it is expected the water will be transported to Armidale in late 2019 or early 2020.

    Make a donation.
