A pampered pooch parade

The 16th Federal Park Party was held on Saturday, featuring a silent disco, busking comp, games and fabulous food.

Yet doggies were again the highlight, and they were on parade from 4pm.

The Re-power Federal campaign with COREM was launched, and residents celebrated the installation both of solar panels on Federal Hall and the village defibrillator.

    Yet they were there, the doggies and all the dogs from all dominations, even the dalmatians, and of course the German Alsatians were there in a pause at different dog-training stations with their paws ready to pounce for those dogs were there with many airy highlights as their coats were brushed and gleamed to show the hair of the dog and the light and dark in very hairy highlights, as they were on parade strutting and walking in onto the run together with their handlers whether they women or men they were in the running, on the run, from 4pm.

A note from the editorial team

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.”
