Weather doesn’t deter hardy Anzac supporters

The misty dawn and hint of rain was hardly going to deter those who had fought in muddy fields, steaming jungles or sandy deserts in the name of our country.

Some 250 veterans and solemn celebrants turned out to this morning’s ANZAC Dawn Service and march past at Brunswick Heads.

Similar events were held across the Northern Rivers and around the country.

Whether or not you think war is ever justified, there is no doubting the bravery and valour of those who fought and sometimes sacrificed their lives for a cause they believed in.

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.”
