Coochie inventor launches hydrogen boosted, off grid water heater

Welcome to your weekend! Your colour copy of our July 2021 issue is now available for you to view and download Coochie Island News July 2021 Online

We’re immensely proud of the inventor featured on page 1. Martin Newton is a talented plumber and has invented something quite spectacular… and is destined for big things. And it started right here on Coochie. Not only will the Redlands be home to the first hydrogen re-fueling station in Queensland – our very own inventor has launched an innovative hydrogen boosted way of heating water – it’s off grid, zero emissions – you’ll have to read our July issue for more…

I am immensely proud of this issue, our best yet. A very special thank you to the contributors who shared their news, views, and talent for writing. Please support our sponsor Bay Island Transport for their magnificent longstanding support of this newspaper. Darren & Louise Gearing, 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), Kevin McCarthy (Coochiemudlo Island Beach Bar), and Steven Shelley, Shelley Contracting, for booking 12 months of ads! Awesome support lads! Thanks to each and every advertiser in CIN, and the businesses allowing us to distribute CIN on their premises. We love you!  BIG THANKS to subeditor Helen Symes for her fast professional work. And thank you dear readers – without you reading, there would be no reason to have a paper.

We have an update on the Coochiemudlo Island Beach Bar’s difficulties with Council and be sure to read the Rental Crisis Hits Coochie article, and read (and sign/share) the online petition for Golf Carts. Redlands Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) is promoting two new shows in CIN this month – we’re very lucky to have quality live entertainment so close to our little isle.  All your regular contributors and columns are back – it’s the perfect weather for reading with your favourite cuppa.

Please support the sponsor and advertisers who make publication possible. The bigger we get and the more colour we run the more expensive it is to print CIN. We’re getting better and better but couldn’t do it without the backing of our sponsor and advertisers. We are very grateful to the outlets who stock CIN and our talented contributors and you, dear reader.

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

Have a lovely weekend!
