Truth

It is with much regret that we read of the closing of the Tweed Echo.

Since its inception we have found it to be the ‘people’s paper’.

I assumed it was going from strength to strength as over the time more people mentioned it in their daily conversations.

We simply wanted you to know that we will miss the paper and its people and thank you for your efforts.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
