About The Village Observer
For more than 25 years, The Village Observer has reported on local issues, people, places and events in Lane Cove and surrounding suburbs and has played a key role in building the sense of community that exists in the area.
Proceeds from The Village Observer support residents of Lane Cove, Hunters Hill, Crows Nest, Artarmon, Willoughby and North Sydney, via Sydney Community Services – a local not-for-profit organisation that helps residents to live a quality and independent life in their own home and in their community.
Copies are bulk distributed to key locations throughout the Lane Cove, Hunters Hill, Gladesville, St Leonards and Crows Nest areas.
The digital version is accessible here. Our Facebook community has recently launched and is keen to pick up followers.
Since its inception in 1993, The Village Observer has evolved from a black and white publication that was started as the brainchild of former Mayor and Councillor Ian Longbottom, into today’s full colour publication compiled by a small team comprising Nicola Riches (Editor), Sharon Curby (Design Manager) and Linda Wortel (Advertising Manager).
