Your say: Letters to the Editor

Songs of Hope

The children from Woden Valley were extremely popular at Sunday's Songs of Hope concert, and it was great to have them.

Like the other performers they gave of their time with great generosity for a good cause.

We should explain why there are no photos of the children in our local paper.

Our photographer informed us that he was not aware that children would be performing, and he had been warned that he is not allowed to photograph anyone under 16 years of age unless he has the written permission of parents or guardians.

This is where today's 'political correctness' has landed us.

We will be speaking to the choir contacts and seeking to resolve the issue in some way for next year.

We are sorry that, inadvertently, we placed our photographer in an awkward situation.

He is also very sorry, because he thought the junior choir was very good.
