What events would you like to see happening in the community? Everyone will have their own set of ideas and right now the Lennox Head cultural and community centre wants to know what you want.

Over the last twelve months the Park Lane Theatre in Lennox Head has hosted a series of successful events, receiving widespread positive community response. The selection of events and activities has been primarily based on community consultation undertaken a year ago, which gathered information from local residents to guide programmers on what is most desired in terms of local arts and cultural programming.

‘It is important that we provide a varied and high-quality program which seeks to meet diverse interests in our community,’ said Kate McBride, Ballina shire council’s acting community facilities team leader.

‘We want to build our profile as a premier entertainment venue in the Northern Rivers, but to do this we need to know what interests our community.

‘The types of things we want to hear about include musical tastes, hobbies and issues of importance. We also ask for general ideas in narrative form about what the ideal local entertainment programme would look like, so through this survey, we really give people the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way’, Ms McBride said.

Let them know what you want here.

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.”
