Tweed Heads playground equipment old and tired

Having just enjoyed a wonderful five-week, 9,000-km driving holiday through many parts of NSW, Canberra, Victoria, South Australia and Western Queensland where in every town, city or whistle stop we were immensely impressed with the playground equipment provided, we were so very disappointed on our return to find that the playground in the so very popular park in Kennedy Drive has still not been revitalised.

The old and tired, faded and broken parts remain as they have been for years.

When does Tweed Shire Council plan to replace them?

The park and boat ramp are crowded with people, picnicking, fishing, boating. You can’t park within cooee on any weekend day, yet the children’s equipment is in an appalling condition.

A refurbishment is way overdue. Our children deserve better.

Margaret and Bill Radcliffe. Tweed Heads

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.”
