The Waterline News Grantville

Welcome to the July, mid winter edition of The Waterline News. We hope you enjoy the additional features we have been able to include in this special 40 page edition. The extra pages have been made available by the addition of some new advertisers and we urge you to give them, and all of our regular advertisers your full support. The introduction of the Council’s new 3 bin system (see page 4) has been the topic of much discussion, but we feel there are still a lot of questions to be answered, so we will be having a special extended report next month, on the bins, particularly on recycling - what you can - and what you can’t. For example, most people believe take-away coffee cups can be recycled - wrong! The lids can but the cups can’t at this stage. More about that next month, but if you would like to make a contribution in the meantime, please feel free to do so.

These fine businesses advertise with us - they deserve your support!

The Waterline News is available throughout the region
if your local outlet does not have stock, please contact us.


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.

Deadline for inclusion in the next edition is always the last day of the month.

The most ardent readers of The Waterline News haven’t necessarily embraced all of todays technologies, so whilst placing your event on social media is a good thing, not all of your target audience is being addressed.
