Council congrats

Jenelle Stanford, Mullum Chamber.

The Mullumbimby Chamber of Commerce would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Byron Shire Council on its efforts to maintain the beautiful garden beds in the centre of Mullumbimby.

We were pleased when the council embarked on this endeavour several years ago, the gardens created were refined and classy, with a great mix of indigenous species in the flower beds, a good reflection of the community and its desires.

Even better has been the continuing attention to detail in the maintenance program, they are improving each year with the growth of plants, new plantings and continual weeding and tidying up.

Well done, it means much to the businesses of Mullumbimby and the broader community.

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.”
