Taking advantage of the brand new skate park and children’s playground Murwillumbah is starting up a new monthly Makers and Finders market. Set in a relaxing and fun environment, the Makers and Finders market is an exciting new venue for artists, vintage wares and musicians from the Tweed region to come together and share their wares and for the community to come to shop, meet, eat, drink and play.

‘These new markets in Murwillumbah are going to be very popular with families with plenty of free activities for kids in the park,’ said organiser Peta Gardiman.

‘We are keen to encourage the community to be environmentally aware, focusing on sustainable living and actively reusing and recycling resources. The market encourages upcycling and recycling of household goods, and also provides an outlet for creative makers to sell their works at market stalls.’

The grand opening will be taking place on August 19, at Knox Park, Brisbane Street, Murwillumbah. It will then be popping up on the third Saturday of every month. So gather your eco friendly bag, skate board, soccer ball and your picnic blanket and make the drive to Murwillumbah to breathe that fresh country air and relax in the park.

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.”
