Okay, okay! It was a DUCK!
28 Feb 2017
Thanks to everyone who got in touch to let us know that our front page “cygnet” was, in fact, a duckling.
No, really. We do appreciate the feedback. It just goes to show how many people read the Docklands News!
Thanks for the phone calls. Thanks for the emails. And thanks for the Facebook picture of the staff noticeboard where the voting about the true identity of our “swan” was front and centre.
But, while, the picture was wrong, we stand by the story. So thanks to Christine Gravier who sent in the photos from Yarra’s Edge of mum, dad and the three kids.
Yes, we fully deserve the satirical comments. You really do have to have a thick skin in this business!
And also while we are in mood to eat humble pie, we need to square things away with the Goldsworthy family. Last month was not a good month for us!
The February paper speculated that Alan Kinkade AM was the first Docklander to be awarded an Order of Australia.
In fact, Nolan resident Don Goldsworthy was awarded an AOM in last year’s Australia Day honours.
Docklands News apologises to Mr Goldsworthy for this mistake.
We promise to try harder this month. But, please, if you spot any other mistakes, please let us know!
