Peter Couldwell, Byron Bay

Just returned to the Shire on Wednesday, grabbed an Echo as the first cab off the rank and put it on the table amidst other coffee-table stuff for a post-cuppa read.

Why did I not get to read it as intended at the time? Well to be honest, I didn’t notice it again until the next day because it could have been any of the miscellaneous mags and papers on the table… it just did not stand out anymore!

Ah, but on page 13… there it was, the ‘rainbow’ Echo on the reusable shopping bag ad… sensaash!

Please return the masthead to its former and deserving glory. I contend that about 90 per cent of Echo lovers would agree?


Support The Echo

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.
