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.

  1. Round them up, send them to camps for complimentary ‘hot showers’
    fear is the only way to control them (us)
    how dare anyone question or challenge anything our government enforces on us.

  2. I can understand ones own celebration is more important then the health and safety of others around. Privilege comes in many guises, Stupidity too.

  3. What idiots. I don’t like dobbers but really these people need to be fined for blatantly ignoring rules which could put everyone at risk. Have a zoom party you stupid people

  4. You could understand if they were the selfish people in Sydney who don’t care about anyone else but themselves, or are they part of the selfish minority demographic that has turned up in the Northern Rivers in the last 10 years or so.
    Hopefully no cases come from it so we can get back to normal as soon as possible.
