A brief note to say thank you for the online Echonetdaily.

Now I get to read a dry – that is, not a wet and saturated by the rain – Echo.

The format you’ve come up with is great! I would, however, like your typeface to be a bit bigger, or at least have a ‘read more’ button on every article and letter so that it can be easily made bigger and read in clear black on white.

Keep up the strongly independent and investigative editorial policies; they are what really makes Echonetdaily stand head and shoulders above the rest of the national and local newspapers.

Trevor R Bird

Editor’s note: Hi Trevor, We have taken on board the great feedback we’ve received from you and many others, and are in the midst of making some design changes to Echonetdaily which we’ll be unveiling in the coming month or so. Keep your eyes peeled.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. 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.
