Bliss cuts both ways
A QUICK note to all celebrants conducting weddings in our beautiful public areas.
Whilst I don’t condone rudeness in any form it bears remembering that compromise is a two way street.
Suffice to say that although a wedding is the most important day for a bride, it is not so for all “sharers” of public space.
Perhaps a celebrant who has had several months notice of a wedding they are conducting at a public place could inform the affected residents well in advance.
This would enable them to alter their plans if possible. Avoiding unnecessary conflict at the last moment.
Prior planning prevents poor performance.
I too, live in Baler St and have variously been unable to park outside my house after work because of weddings, picked up cigarette butts after weddings, picked up streamers & other decorative things after weddings and so on.
There really must be consideration both ways.
Remember a permit from council allows a commercial activity to occur on public land.
It does not give preferential use to the holder.
In the same sense, no fisherman can claim rights to his favourite spot or dog owner claim rights over a preferred stretch of sand or kite-surfer block off the beach they are using.
We are all in this together, let’s communicate and remember that no one person/group has more or less right to enjoy our beautiful region.
It is usually “first in best dressed”. rudely knocked aside by a male waiter and also found the bar staff rude, pity as the view and food were great. Thanks to everyone for such a special holiday experience.
