Echo Letters: No to big events

Dieter Horstmann’s cropcircle
must have been drawn
by an alien from another
planet if he thinks locals are
going to get behind this

I, and I believe most of
Dieter’s neighours, moved to
Tyagarah because while we
love the progressive, alternative
scene of Byron Shire,
and its stunning natural
beauty and beaches, we don’t
love the drunken party-town
that Byron Bay has become.
Most of us prefer not to go
near town on New Year or

I have many friends who
need the tourists for their
income, and respect that.
However if Byron Bay has
fi nally woken up and realised
that it doesn’t need that
particular demographic, then
please don’t spread the mess
out to the rest of the Shire.

Wouldn’t it make more
sense to come up with constructive
ways to discourage
it – for example by making
the entire town dry, or the
dance parties with music that
appeals to an older or more
alternative demographic.

Locals worried about this,
or the Blues Festival’s plans to
build a major venue in
Tyagarah (double the current
size and many more large
events) are encouraged to
come to a community meeting
Monday March 21 at
Tyagarah Hall opposite the
airstrip at 6.30pm. For more,
email {deleted}.
