Welcome to your weekend! And what a strange life we are all living in the age of Corona.
We are very pleased to be able to deliver to you our April issue of the Coochie Island News at this time when people need a dose of positivity and inspiration. Thank you to our sponsor and advertisers for continuing to support this publication to enable us to publish this month. Other newspapers are closing due to advertisers pulling their ads out. We are grateful to be able to continue *THANK YOU*.
Your colour copy is now available for you to view and download here:-
For the perfect weekend vibe, grab a coffee or a cuppa tea and dive into our April issue, it’s our best yet!
Please read the Council and Amity Trader COVID-19 announcements, then relax with community news and articles you’ll love. The printed version of our April issue will be distributed to Coochie and mainland outlets today starting with island outlets and progressively distributing to Redlands. CBD outlets are closed.
Enjoy book and film reviews, poetry, fishing news (at the time of printing you are still allowed to go fishing but do keep up to date with restrictions), exercises you can do at home and outside, and our columnist Chris Patty is back with tips on how to get friendly with the anxiety we’re all feeling right now (super helpful!). Enjoy our Featured Creative and On the Hammock interviews, and our Salty Tales column is back with another hilarious story from our resident pirate. Island organisations have provided important updates on their activities and sadly, cancellations and postponements.

Big thank you to our sponsor Bay Island Transport and to our advertisers, especially our Key Advertising Partners who booked ads for 12 months: Craig Carter of Coochie Contractors, Grant Malseed of Superformance and Matt Bufalino of Bufalino Builders. You are the wind beneath our wings! Publication would be impossible without you. Thank you.
Please support the sponsor and advertisers who make publication possible. If you call them with inquiries tell them you saw them in the Coochie Island News. They want to know, and it’s good for us! If you love this paper, spread the word!
