Important distribution notice

FROM July 1, hard copies of Echo News will only be available from bulk dispensers located throughout the Cities of Swan and Kalamunda and Shire of Mundaring.

The decision to stop home distribution was a difficult one to make, but rest assured we will continue to print hard copies, available at shopping centres, local government buildings and community centres, while we expand our digital platform.

The move comes after a 53 per cent increase in the cost to print the paper.

Labor’s commitment to help independent suburban newspaper publishers cover this cost increase is still paramount to the running of your only local newspaper.

Echo News is waiting for these vital funds so that we can keep printing hard copies of the newspaper and increase our bulk drop locations for our readers who prefer a hard copy.

In the meantime, while we investigate pathways to expand our online presence, we need advertisers to keep using their local newspaper to advertise their businesses, and we need you, the reader, to support our advertisers.

Together, we can insure that local news and support of local businesses continues to not only survive, but thrive.
