It is with great pleasure that I announce the Champion's decision to bring back its letters to the editor page, albeit in a slightly different form.
Each week, we will not only feature content submitted in the traditional letter format, but also a selection of choice comments made publicly via our Facebook page and our website.
Just as it was always intended, the "Your View" page is a space where you the reader is free to air your opinions on all manner of subjects.
Priority will of course be given to those choosing to discuss matters of local relevance, and healthy debate among the readership is encouraged.
It should be noted, that just like the stories that appear in this paper, the rules of defamation apply to your letters — personal attacks will not be tolerated at any point, and content may be subject to modification for legal reasons.
The final say on all content that runs - and does not - is at the discretion of the editor.
And please note, that for letters to be considered, they must include a return address and telephone number for verification.
