Manly Observer is an experiment in providing non-sensationalist hyperlocal news in the Manly ward region (lower Northern Beaches). It is run by those living in the community for the benefit of an informed community. That’s it. Simple.
We will endeavour to be as direct and clear as we can, with the occasional quirky pun or bit of observational humour or conversational tone.
Objectivity is near impossible. It’s like trying to stop the aggressive Manly seagulls from pinching your chips! You’ll probably fail but you at least have to put in a few kicks and strive for success.
We will do our best to be free, frank, and fair always.
Editor, Manly Observer
