There are so many wonderful, complementary, erudite and positive adjectives which can be easily used to describe you, wonderful Mandy Nolan.

Equally, there are as many sad, angry at life, disgusting adjectives which could be used to describe the reaction of ‘that’ troll to your column.

Mandy, this loving, peaceful protective community most certainly has your back!

The Echo and its supporters and advertisers are also wholesomely supported by this wonderful community.

The ‘troll’ will hopefully be supported by some benevolent higher power to rid him of his sad rage.

Mandy, Echo, advertisers… please keep up your magnificent, independent, learned work and support of this unique community.

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.


  1. And I second that, Mark. Mandy has ‘that way about her reasoning’ to call
    all the goods together when writing her articles. No ducking & weaving &
    never ‘a sell out’. A great pity there ain’t more like her & the Echo’s own
    outlook. Both are decent & cannot be bought.
