Tip-Toe through the camphors

Ten-year-old Emily told The Echo the first act she saw was called the Wheel of Death, which was ‘a lady doing tricks on tricks wheel. Some of the tricks she was about to perform seemed impossible at first, although she managed it. One of the best tricks, in my opinion, was when she hung onto the wheel and spun upside down. She then proceeded with a trick where she fitted her whole body in a tiny hoop’.


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.
