Letter headline misleading
I RECENTLY wrote a letter regarding Pemberton’s nomination in the 2017 GWN Top Tourism Award.
In my letter, published in the Manjimup-Bridgetown Times
on September 6 titled Town could be tidier, I voiced my concerns regarding the amount of rubbish that littered the roadsides leading into Pemberton and made reference that I was hopeful the award does not take into account this issue.
The heading that accompanied my letter was quite misleading and did not capture the point I was making.
At no stage did I state that the township of Pemberton “could be tidier”, I was simply pointing out the amount of litter that is on show along all the roads leading into this beautiful part of the State.
The escalation of litter continues to blight the wonderful landscape of the magnificent karri country we are fortunate to have in the region.
I believe the headline has taken my observation out of context and feel the Pemberton township has been unfairly treated with a poorly constructed headline that infers an accusation that Pemberton is untidy. Nikki Duggan, Pemberton
