The Waterline News Grantville
Welcome to the November edition of The Waterline News. Here we are with the penultimate edition for 2017 and hard to believe just how fast the year has gone. This year has seen many changes at The Waterline News, which continues to grow and provide a free service to all community groups to promote their organisations. We also provide encouragement and opportunity for all local writers, poets and artists to showcase their work, some being published for the first time. Interesting though, the number of community events that we see happening that we do not receive details of. We can only print what we get the details of and encourage all community groups to appoint someone on their Committee whose job is to get details of events to community magazines and local newspapers. The deadline for our final edition for the year is Friday 1 December. Distribution will take place during the week commencing 18 December. As in previous years, we will have a January edition with a 2 January deadline, with distribution expected w/c 15 January. We are planning to make that edition a Summer Reading special edition as we did last year, so if you’ve got a story to tell, send it to us. Why not tell us why you love where you live? Take care and thanks to the team as always.
For many of you, the NBN is coming - soon!
In spite of what you read or see on the news, most people are happy with this new service, if you would like to put your mind at rest, read this (www.esahc.com/nbn.html)

The Waterline News is a Grantville and district based local independent community magazine which is delivered to outlets in Tooradin, Koo Wee Rup, Lang Lang, Nyora, Loch, Kernot, Grantville, Corinella, Coronet Bay, Bass, San Remo, Newhaven, Phillip Island, Cowes and French Island. The Waterline News is edited and produced by Independent Journalist Roger Clark from Grantville who has more than 40 years experience as a journalist, mostly in the sporting arena but he has also had considerable experience with community and local tourism newsletters in both the Yarra Valley and Tarwin Lower/Venus Bay in past years. Over the past two years he contributed feature stories on various topics and then took over as editor of the Bass Valley News. Roger has a passion for Community development in the Grantville and District area, acted as the flagmaster for the Memorial Park for three years, served on the Cemetery trust for four years and is keen to develop The Waterline News as an independent local community magazine free from the restraints of being tied to any one organisation. The pages of The Waterline News are open to all community groups, generally on a no cost basis with community groups requested to send your details by the first of each month for distribution scheduled for the third Thursday each month. The Waterline News contains contact details of all local Community Groups who have provided information, with opportunities to promote their special events and activities, these include Lang Lang, Corinella, Cowes and Wonthaggi Neighbourhood Houses and Community Centres. Please contact The Waterline News to submit an article, advertise, notify the community of up-coming events, ask a question, comment or perhaps suggest an idea for future inclusion. Your suggestions are welcome.
