Kingscliff District Football Club will receive $5,000 in federal funding for change rooms under the Stronger Communities Programme said local MP Justine Elliot.

‘I congratulate Kingscliff District Football Club on this important project. They will match the federal funding of $5,000 bringing the total value of the project to $10,000 for these additional change rooms.

‘The project will allow for the club to install change rooms at the Walter Peate Oval where none currently exist. The additional two change rooms will provide club members and visiting teams with basic amenities before and after games. The successful completion of this project will give the Club the capacity to meet the needs of players during the season.

‘Our local Stronger Communities Programme delivers funding across the Richmond electorate for small capital grants supporting projects that will contribute to the vibrancy and viability of our region.

‘I’ll always fight to get our fair share from Canberra. This funding is part of the more than $2 billion that I’ve delivered for local roads, schools, health and community resources,” Justine said.

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.”
