October 2018 Editorial

Ferntree Gully News repackaged: from newsprint to beautiful book

We are delighted to announce the publication of Ferntree Gully News, Scenes and Stories, 2009-17, a collection of stories and photographs sourced from the first 50 issues of this newspaper.

The book will be available for purchase from 1 October 2018.

This book is a uniquely crafted portrait of people, individual and groups, in a special place and time. The high standard of the production also enhances the many quality photographs that originally appeared on newsprint.

We wish to thank Knox City Council’s Community Development Fund for a grant towards funding the cost of printing. Also the publishers, Mountain District Learning Centre and the members of the Gully News team for help in production. Special thanks go to Teresa Cannon who did most of the selection and editing and all of the formatting.

Above all we say thank you to all the contributors to the book and to the newspaper, and to the community of Ferntree Gully. You are what it is all about!

Anne Boyd, Editor
