image1Sadly, some joker thought it would be a good idea to steal our newly erected sign at South Golden Beach Community Centre.

Senseless acts such as this are disappointing but our passion for our community still burns brightly.

We recognise that the majority of our residents respect our community facilities and encourage residents who wish to contribute to the care and management of our community centre to consider nominating for the S355 management committee.

See Sgbhall.com for more info or ring Byron Shire Council on 6626 7000.

We live in hope that a random act of conscience will yet return the sign to its rightful place.

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. Dear Angela,
    I and we who run Upper Main Arm( Kohinur) Community Centre know only to well the feelings of frustration, anger and despair when some dick head or two decides to perform an act of mindless vandalism on the centres we work so hard to maintain for the communities we serve. We recently had a gas bottle stolen, a break in with minor damage and vandalism to our amenities block. More work, more expenses that could go elsewhere.
    it really gives one the shits. Commiserations to you and your committee. We are with you.
