Ken Gainger, Bangalow

After a decade of dedication to improving the quality of life of the less fortunate in our community Paul Spooner has announced his resignation as the general manager of the Byron Community Centre.

Paul will be sadly missed and his generosity of spirit and commitment to the Byron community will be long remembered by those who have had the pleasure of working with Paul and/or being associated with his good work.

Congratulations, Paul, on your amazing contribution to our community – good luck in your future endeavours.


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.
