Village Journal


Hello and welcome to another Village Journal – September 2015.

This month we had planned to unveil the new Village Journal masthead but sadly due to ill health this has been post- poned until next month but for now I’ll let you all in on a little secret.

The artwork that we commissioned has been designed by our good friend and long-time supporter of the VJ; local artist and environmentalist Carolyn Russell. The suspense is nearly killing us as a lot of time and effort has gone into the rebranding of the VJ while taking into consideration and maintain- ing its local significance. Stay tuned for next month’s masthead - it will be a beauty.

Speaking of great artists and environ- mentalists; in this month’s edition we also feature an interview with another local icon; environmentalist and activ- ist - Benny Zable who has been taking his special brand of rabble raising to the US of A. Also in this edition we have the latest updates from the team
at Getup, the Greens, and the Friends
of the Koalas; the crew at WIRES, and we will take a trip into the past with ‘perspectives from the VJ’, which looks at the early VJs and life in this area in the 1980s.

In fact this month’s VJ is jam packed with a whole host of interest- ing, entertaining and informative pieces.

So get in to it!
