Ewingsdale under siege?

So the Toffs of Ewingsdale are in fear of the imminent invasion of old people.

Poor souls, imagine the increase in crime – the misfortune of suffering graffiti written in the finest of the Queen’s English without the aid of spell check. The constant theft of tea bags and the illegal trafficking of viagra.

How could us simple Plebs from Suffolk Park not sympathise with your frustrations? We had an OP (old people) zoning slapped on us years ago without community consultation and are constantly returning slippers, pipes and unregistered walkers to their forgetful owners.

Let’s hope future generations are more compassionate when your ‘use by date’ approaches and haven’t adopted the ‘open land fill’ solution. Rest assured that site shall never be built on due to the unstable foundations.

Despite the mayor’s recent backflip rest assured when the corks are popping and the ribbons need cutting his melon will be in front of every flashing camera.

Jeff Barnes, Suffolk Park (home to the old folk)

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers.
