Wanted: Housesitters


Hi, we are looking for someone to house sit for us between 22 Dec - 9 Jan.
We have veggies growing that need watering and picking, a cat that needs feeding and a little but of affection, chickens & guinea pigs that free range but need their water and pellets topped up and the occasional scraps. 
We are located about 400 m from Oak Park train station.
House is three bedrooms (1 queen bed, 1 single bunk and 1 single bed).
If you are interested please email Justine at or call 0425 340 536.



Dear Newlanders,

We will be auctioning our  beautiful house at 13 Tilley St Coburg North this Saturday 28th November  at 11am.

Come along and enjoy a bit of community street theatre AKA auction action. You are of course also welcome to bid!

Thank you to all our friends and neighbours and relatives for making our time in Tilley St so enjoyable.

From Rosemary.
