We’re 10 years old

28 May 2013

By Shane Scanlan

Docklands News is 10 years old this month.

The Docklands Authority started the paper and the first edition was published 10 years ago.

In edition number two, its founder Peter Crowley outlined a mission statement that was crafted by a representative committee of community volunteers:

“The Docklands Community News seeks to strengthen the Docklands community through the provision of relevant community-based information in a regular newsletter”.

That sentiment continues to drive our editorial decision-making.

The Docklands News of June 2013 pays tribute to the original committee, some of whom are still active in our community: Lea and Paul O’Halloran, Irene Wasenko, Kirsten Howe, Peter and Lyn Kelly, Anthony and Kerry Scott, Wendy Gersh, Duean White and Wanda Drozkowski.

While the paper started life as a government publication, for the past six years it has been privately owned and relies entirely on advertising revenue.

We also salute our loyal advertisers who have made this past decade of community connection possible. Together, we have created something unique here in Docklands.

Our community has changed dramatically over the journey and is constantly being renewed with new people discovering it for the first time.

Our ambition is to continue to serve the Docklands community.
