Suffolk Park Pump Track

We the ‘Engaged Neighbours’, on behalf of the Suffolk Park pump track’s affected neighbours and 300–400 petitioners and letter writers, request Council NOT to continue to bulldoze the large fenced in section of Linda Vidler Parkland adjacent to Baz and Shaz’s shop, close to the houses on three sides.

Jungle juice

There are times when water just doesn’t cut it. And luckily, for those times, there is Jungle Juice.

The owners and staff of The Shop at South Golden Beach wish to congratulate the coordinators of Splendour in The Grass for enlivening the streets of our town with the vibrancy and colour that young people bring.

Their behaviour was exemplary and their enthusiasm and joy was infectious. Not only have we benefitted as a small local business but the increased patronage generated bigger orders for all our local supplies and growers and created much needed extra hours and income for our staff.

However, even if we were not business owners, we would still appreciate the benefits that events at North Byron parklands bring to the north of the shire.

We could hear the festival over two nights from our shop and home but only outside, and even so it wasn’t offensive.

Donna and Denis, The Shop, South Golden Beach

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.

  1. And lets not forget to thanks them for the huge mess left behind at the site by these ‘vibrant, colourful’ people. It wasn’t just the site though .. i cleaned up bottles etc at our children’s bus stop at SGB. Probably repeated at1170 every over bus stop too. Almost forgot to thank them for the incredibly loud noise heard over 10km away but much worst here! Lets not get into the impacts on the wildlife corridor and 50 threatened species.
