The Waterline News Grantville
Welcome to the August edition of The Waterline News. Winter’s almost gone and we are looking forward to spring. With spring in mind, I thought it was time for a bit of spring-cleaning through the pages of The Waterline News and have made a few subtle changes. This is a significant edition, in as much as it completes our third full year, with our actual birthday edition next month. A preview edition of The Waterline News was circulated in August 2014, with the first edition, all 12 pages, distributed in September. Much has happened since then, last month, and again this month we are running 40 pages, with the decision to stay or revert back to 36 pages yet to be made. I won’t tell you what our two long suffering proof readers say. Next month as part of the birthday edition, I will be devoting a page to look back at some of my favourite front covers. If you have a favourite, remember you can look back at them all on the website: www.waterlinenews.com.au and if you would like us to feature your favourite, then simply email and let us know. The Waterline News has a very small production team, with my two outstanding proof readers, and a couple of special friends and their husbands, who help with the deliveries each month, rain, hail or shine.
Then my long suffering wife, who completes the team, contributing ideas, some proof reading and who has to put up with me while each edition is in production. The other part of the team, behind the scenes and often with little credit, are the band of contributors who compile submissions for their various community groups and get them in somewhere near deadline time. Much has changed in the original aim and philosophy behind the development of the magazine. Our distribution area has increased to almost double what was originally targeted and our email distribution and website visitor numbers continue to grow strongly. The original aim to make space available to all community groups remains the same, and a lot of the community notices, that look like advertising, are in fact free community ads. As editor, I am proud of what we have been able to achieve and look forward to another year ahead.

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

The Waterline News is available throughout the region

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.
