The final lamppost has been decorated in Mullumbimby by students at Cobbers Pre-School who are leaving their mark for all to see. The project was instigated by Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce and has seen all the lamppost in the main street of Mullumbimby decorated by students from Mullumbimby High School and Shearwater, except for this final addition.

Craig Watson, from Soul Patterson Chemist who is a member of the Mullum Chamber was on hand to help the little children reach as high as they could to make sure they all hand a chance to get their hand prints on the pole.

‘We thought this was a great way to beautify the town, keep it local and include the community,’ said Jenelle Stanford, president of the Mullum Chamber.

The Mullumbimby Newsagent and Mitre 10 donated the paint and materials used for the project.

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.”
