Letters to the Editor

Letters are one of the most important parts of the paper because this is where the community has a chance to have its say. All letters to the editor received will generally be published, provided they are not defamatory or are covering exactly the same ground by the same writer.

Non du plume are acceptable, but the name, address and contact details must be provided to the editor.

Tourism has committed itself to operating under a sustainable guidance system for all the areas tourism affects - that means our culture, community and environment.

Let them form their own party

Monday January 08, 2018
