Editions

Welcome to the 100th edition of Docklands News

31 Jul 2014

Editorial by Bethany Williams

For more than 10 years now we've been delivering news and views from postcode 3008.

While I haven’t been with the paper since its inception in 2003, I have had the opportunity to witness the value of local media over the past two years.

Docklands News aims not only to provide the local community with information, but also to provide an outlet for expression.

A place to share opinions, to draw attention to important issues, to revel in good news and to highlight everything that makes Docklands a great place to live, work and visit.

In producing each edition I am always struck by just how much is happening in Docklands, how interested local residents and workers are in what’s happening around them and how important a fact-driven, informative local newspaper is to building community.

To celebrate our 100th issue, we’ve included a special edition wrap, which captures many of the personalities who have been featured in the paper throughout the previous 99 editions. A big thank you to Michael Lindell for all of his had work creating these amazing caricatures. We've included a list of the identities featured below. See if you can work out who’s who!

We’ve also included a photo spread, with plenty of images from our archives, again featuring plenty of familiar faces.

In celebrating this milestone, it’s also important to recognise everyone who has supported the publication right from the start.

Our advertisers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to publish the newspaper each month, the contributors and columnists who have helped to fill the pages of each edition and the readers who have shared news, provided feedback and picked up a copy of the paper each month.

Last, but certainly not least, an enormous amount of credit must be given to the owner of the paper, Shane Scanlan, who has made the paper what it is today.

We hope to continue our role as “the voice of Docklands” and look forward to sharing more stories from the waterfront in issue 101 and beyond.
