Hey – you new lot…

Andrew Hall, Ocean Shores

Oi, you new chums, refos from the cities, new residents and local crazies who are filling the Shire; please pay attention.

Mullumbimby is special, and is getting crowded. We need to maintain its special ambience and I want to draw your attention to a particular problem with this before disaster strikes, or, at least a nasty accident.

So pay attention now. Part of Mullum’s specialness is ‘PEDESTRIANS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY’ – not cars.

You new chums need to realise that when you emigrate to (or even just visit) Mullumbimby it takes approximately three months to slow down to the local speed. It is a blissful, gentle, friendly speed. And worthwhile achieving.

Also, it makes it much safer for we pedestrians as we wander across the road. The whole town is a pedestrian crossing. So join us and learn the art of gentle driving. It will lower your stress levels and help you blend in to paradise.
Lay back and become a local. Slow down.

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.
