Christmas Appeal: Stop Nativity Photophobia sign now

The City of Edinburgh Council in 2002 was one of the first councils in Scotland to ban parents taking photographs of their children at school events. Subsequently taking a photo of your childs sports day or nativity play has become increasingly problematic in Scotland and indeed across the UK. Something that was once a very natural part of recording a lovely event in someones life is frequently being sullied by unnecessary regulations enforced by overzealous councils and headteachers who enforce such bans.
There are no laws banning the taking of photographs at schools, nor should there be. But when it comes to local rules and regulations things have got out of hand. Lets put some goodwill back into Christmas this year and end these unpleasant, distrusting bans.
We the undersigned oppose the restrictions and regulations placed on parents taking photographs at nativity plays and school events.
