One of the unsung heroes of My Weekly is, ironically, one of our biggest stars, and on reading her words this week it dawned on me that I really don’t shout about her enough. Helen Lederer has been our advice columnist for a decade, and in that time, she has covered all manner of dilemmas. Through it all there has been a consistent thread of compassion and pragmatism that makes her words truly valuable. This week Helen is taking on the thorniest of subjects – family weddings! See what she says on page 63. Have a great week!
