June Issue of the Coochie Island News out now!

Welcome to your weekend!  Our June Issue is now available with your recommended healthy dose of positivity and inspiration.

Thank you to our sponsor Bay Island Transport for your magnificent ongoing support. Thank you to each of our advertisers for supporting CIN so we could continue publishing during COVID-19 uncertainty. We have lost some advertisers so we are grateful to be able to continue. Huge thanks to Craig Carter (Coochie Contractors) and Matt Bufalino (Bufalino Builders) for booking 12 months of ads! Awesome support lads!

Your colour copy is now available for you to view and download here:-

Coochie Island News June 2020 Online

For the perfect weekend vibe, grab a coffee or a cuppa tea and dive into our June issue, it’s our best yet!

The printed version is already at Oasis and Curlew Cafe on Coochie and will be distributed progressively to mainland outlets during the day, as well as Seminara Apartments and Red Rock Cafe.  Our CBD outlets have now re-opened! Hurrah!

Columnist Chris Patty has tips on how to wrangle love relationships (not an easy task!), Amity Trader has published their new timetables for you to easily lift out and pop onto your fridge, and you can enjoy our Featured Creative and On the Hammock interviews, and our Salty Tales columnist is back with Part 2 of his Captain Runamuk story for children aged 8-11. It’s another hilarious story from our resident pirate.

Island organisations have provided important updates on re-starting activities.  You’ll also find our regular book reviewer, poets, fishing tips and a piece on why hamlets and islands near cities are post-virus winners.
