D James, Myocum

Congratulations to the councillors who voted in favour of keeping clothes-optional bathing in our Shire. With continued positive attitudes we should be able to work together as a community to help rid the beach of the unwelcome sexualised behaviour.

This was not a win for the perverts, but a win for the many decent community-minded people who love using the beach as nature intended. Well done!


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.
