Byron Bay’s Hello Sunday Morning, in fact held last Saturday at Apex Park, was a great success with about 500 people enjoying the morning.

Feather, Tommy Franklin and Sergio Naranjarte took part in the event that aims to raise awareness around excessive alcohol consumption.

The vibe was great, the community really got involved and no one was afraid to join in and dance,’ said one of the organisers Grace Enright.

‘Tommy helped set the tone as he is so infectious when he dances, you can’t wipe the smile off your face when you watch him. It was great to see people of all ages and both men and women join in!’

There are four more Hello Sunday Morning dance parties coming up, the next one is in Melbourne this Sunday and then the Sunday after they will be in Hobart and then Fremantle and ending the campaign in Sydney. 

‘Because Hello Sunday Morning offers digital support and we have a large network of people all over the world, having these physical events locally is a great way for us to spread awareness for our mission, to change Australia’s drinking culture, one Sunday at a time! Empowering people to find a great relationship with alcohol, whether that means cutting back or quitting altogether,’ finished grace.

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.”
