The Waterline News Grantville

Welcome to the June edition of The Waterline News. Winter is well and truly with us and we hope you’ll find plenty to read in this month’s edition, curled up in front of the warm heater. Special thanks to John Wells for taking us along on his fascinating historical trip by steam rail, to Port Albert. We have all of our other usual historical features, and some great reading in the Arts, books and writing pages. We welcome Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Pamela Rothfield, whose first column features on page 27. We also have some exciting special features and new columns coming up over the next few months. None of this could be done without the amazing contributions from our readers, so thank you all for your input, please keep it going. One of our astute readers also asked me to remind you that every month’s edition and all editions ever published, all appear in full colour on our website.

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.

All published editions of The Waterline News are available for viewing and downloading here
