Debbi Tinker, New Brighton

Once upon a time there were previous Echo drudges working hard to keep the paper going. They too loved The Echo like it was part of them.

They challenged themselves to come up with the new Echo masthead to brighten things up as it was mainly black and white. It progressed into a beautiful rainbow-coloured masthead with bevelled edges making it jump out looking 3D.

All was happy and well. More people read The Echo as it was colourful and different.

Then a while later the new Echo drudges changed the masthead back to mainly black and white. There was an uprising and a revolt. It looked flat and boring, it was dark and gloomy. And when it went to print it looked like shit. All the people of the land were unhappy.

The uprising became bigger than Bentley so they changed it back and everyone was happy again.

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
