Rural classic draws 125

Greg Robinson and Sharon Thompson picked up the honours on Saturday when more than 120 golfers took part in  the Mullumbimby Rural Co–op/Whites Rural Classic golf day at the Mullumbimby course.

The annual event was originally set down for April but was rained off because of heavy rainfall on the day. But all came good for the rescheduled event.

‘The weather on the weekend was as good as it was bad in April,’ Neil Farquhar, board member of the Co-op said.

‘Because of the rescheduling there were a few less sponsors on board, but the course was in great condition and plenty of people came along for the golf,’ he said.

Greg was the best male player with his score of 42, while Sharon was the best female on course with 41 points. B Bartlet was the best non-golfer on the day.

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.”
