The September Issue of Coochie Island News is Out Now!

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

Thank you to our sponsor Bay Island Transport for your magnificent longstanding support of this newspaper. We love your community spirit! Thank you to each of our advertisers for your community focus. We grow businesses and we love having you on board.  Huge thanks to Craig Carter (Coochie Contractors), Matt Bufalino (Bufalino Builders) and Steven Shelley, Shelley Contracting, for booking 12 months of ads! Awesome support lads!

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 (or later on a beer, or rum for island pirates) and dive into our September issue, it’s our best yet!

The printed version is already at Oasis on Coochiemudlo, Curlew Cafe, Seminara Apartments and the Gym on Coochie and will be distributed progressively to Red Rock Cafe and our mainland outlets during the day including Folio Bookstore, Mary Street, and the State Library Bookstore, Southbank.

We have a super duper issue for you this month including two new island columnists: Olivia Coleman is sharing with us her journey from dreaming about living on a boat, to getting her boat licence and buying a 42 foot catamaran and whatever happens next… you’ll be the first to know! Kylie Purdie is back tempting you with her latest book review and we introduce Internet Film Reviews from September, by Diane Gilham.

The Coochie Diary is back, listing events on and near Coochiemudlo Island (produced by Chris Mansergh of The Coochie Coachman).  We have Bill Wight writing on Coochie’s data superhighway, and columnist Chris Patty’s thoughtful piece on ‘kind acts of randomness’. Enjoy our Featured Creative and On the Hammock interviews, and Russell Jackson’s news about our Coochie Outrigging group racing for glory!

Island organisations have provided updates on their activities on the island including a timetable of activities from the Recreation Club.  Flatten your tummy with Helen Symes’ health matters column, and enjoy island poetry, fishing tips and our super useful island businesses and services directory. And I’ve given over my editorial column to someone who had a really good news story!

Finally, please support the sponsor and advertisers who make publication possible. We are very grateful to the outlets who stock CIN and our volunteers and BIG THANKS to subeditor Helen Symes.

Thanks for supporting Coochie Island News. It means a lot to us.

Have a lovely weekend,
