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.

  1. The cart for solar needs pushing in the place when the sun shines first on the coast of Australia.
    We need a pole and a wire as we push a push poll to see what the sun’s power will shine on.
    The sun beams down on the coast while we stop loading the coal into the coal loader and the bailer.
    So take your beaming face to the Byron Solar Revolution symposium on Saturday and swtch the solar on.
    Enthusiasm is what we want for couples to stand for a non-polluting future for their daughters and sons.

  2. Go Byron. I’m glad I have my 12 solar panels on my house. Wanted to do it for years. I totally support the solar industry and hopefully we can make the Govt support us eventually.
