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.

  2. To Luis Feliu
    I very big thank you for putting the rock walling of Belongil beach firmly back on the front page. I notice many online comments already and my emails are buzzing. Many bouquets to you Luis for taking it up – this is what the issue needed to pull people out of their lethargy. Its OUR beach that is being sacrificed here. JH

  3. Hello Echo Going out for a coffee on a beautiful Sunday morning and I grab a local Echo. Maybe during these strange times I am looking for happy positive things and the title “Newborn hijacks van’ was a headliner that was poorly thought of and took away a price winning headtile with the delightful story of a newborn entering the world. Very disappointing. Con on happy stories need positive title that includes creative writing.Cheers BC
