Hi all, I have a bunch of different templates that includes another template (updatetopbar.ss) which returns the lastupdate date via calling a function in Page.php

Page.php
class Page extends SiteTree {
   public static $db = array(
   );
   public static $has_one = array(
   );   
   function GetLatestUpdate(){
   return DataObject::get_one('UpdatesPage', '', true, 'Created DESC');
}

updatetopbar.ss
<% if GetLatestUpdate %>
<% control GetLatestUpdate %>
$Date.Nice
<% end_control %>
<% end_if %>

Now for some reason on half of my templates $Date.Nice simply does not populate and I can't figure out why!

Any help would be great
