Royal wed­ding helped raise a smile


Evening Express (Extra Edition) - - LETTERS -

IN RE­SPONSE to R Mac­far­lane’s letter about mock wed­dings be­ing held at schools and the ed­u­ca­tional value of this – my re­sponse is: “Smile for good­ness sake”. We have so much neg­a­tiv­ity in this coun­try. I think the wed­ding was noth­ing but a good thing. It en­cour­aged peo­ple to have street par­ties, bar­be­cues, and a good time in gen­eral. My daugh­ter en­joyed her mock wed­ding at play­group. So R Mac­far­lane, even though he is ob­vi­ously a bit of a doom and gloomer, should have left the rest of us – es­pe­cially the kids – to en­joy the oc­ca­sion.

– K Shaw WELL done to Lind­say Robert­son for de­vot­ing her­self to help­ing street chil­dren in Sierra Leone. The world needs more peo­ple who think of oth­ers be­fore them­selves. Lind­say de­serves our sup­port.

hold­ing mock wed­dings. The pupils are be­ing taught about the dif­fer­ent types of wed­dings that can be held now and that have been held through the years. – A Milne

I WISH to re­spond to R Mac­far­lane’s letter about the ed­u­ca­tional value of schools
