Year 2000

… and now

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 supports residents of Lane Cove, Hunters Hill, Ryde, 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.

Delivered to around 20,000 homes through Lane Cove, Longueville, Northwood, Greenwich, Riverview, Hunters Hill, Linley Point, Woolwich and St Leonards on the first weekend of each month (with the exception of January), copies are also distributed to local businesses throughout the area.

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 Mariano Massa (Advertising Manager).
