The Mosman Living Facebook Group began in 2016 and quickly grew to thousands of members. Now an online forum for anyone living, working or spending time on the lower North Shore, it has become a place where the community can connect to make the most of this fantastic part of the world.
Since the Group began, countless local businesses have been recommended and reputable tradespeople put forward, many missing pets and items have been located, great local activities have been discovered, generous donations have been made to local charities, and members have been able to unite to bring about positive change in the community. There has also been local insights, beautiful images, news items and helpful information.
The desire to preserve all of this great information, along with the positive feedback and rapid growth of the group, convinced the Admins – Naomi Sheriff and Bianca Horwitz – that a website was a logical and exciting next phase for community engagement. Launched in 2018, the Mosman Living website contains a lot of what the Group’s members have been generous enough to share about our local community – plus much more.
The HOME page offers articles on the subjects of community, lifestyle, the home, family, people, places and great local businesses.
WHAT’S ON has been a popular feature in the Mosman Living Facebook Group and highlights upcoming events for children and adults in the local area, plus anything a bit further afield that might be of interest. Upcoming events can be viewed ahead and bookings made if necessary.
The DINING GUIDE is a platform for our many amazing local cafes and eateries to showcase their menus and let the community know what they offer.
The BUSINESS DIRECTORY is a much-needed list of our local small businesses and services. To preserve and support the small specialty businesses that make our area what it is, it’s vital that the community knows about them and can find their details easily. ML Group members have shown they love supporting local, and can now do so at the click of a button in the Directory for all their commercial needs.
CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES offers a list and detailed information on local children’s and adults’ classes and activities such as sports, creative leisure activities, hobbies, yoga and pilates, and many more you might never have known were on your doorstep.
NOTICEBOARD is the place to find and advertise for babysitters; jobs vacant; and more.
We welcome all feedback, suggestions and amendments. Please feel free to contact us.
Group Admins Bianca and Naomi were colleagues in the magazine industry in the early 2000s. Both are experienced content creators who have worked in journalism, editing and publishing for many years.
Recognising a shared passion for the lower North Shore, and a belief that local living could be improved by connecting the community, they launched Mosman Living and Willoughby Living Facebook Groups, and formed The Living Collective Pty Ltd.
