Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Crossing Over

I miss travelling. I miss the thrill of going somewhere new. The last few years feels like we’ve had no adventures. No interesting and foreign lands to explore.  It’s been all about staying at home. Thanks to Annastacia Palaszczuk, going to Queensland feels a bit like going overseas. I’ve had to cross the border for work a few times lately.

As part of its yearly grants to community organisations, the Falls Music & Arts Festival have donated $2,500 to the Brunswick Heads ‘Nippers’ Junior Surf Life Saving Club for brand new surfboards.

Co-organisers say $1 from each ticket sold goes into a community fund which is then distributed throughout the community.

Other beneficiaries this year include the Crabbes Creek Community Hall, Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre, the Ocean Shores Community Centre and the NYE Soul Street event.


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.
