The Editor's Letter


Do come in 2024! I hope you all enjoyed the festive period. Is there still some festive cheese left in the fridge? I don’t know about you but after New Year, I can’t even look at another cream cracker for a good few weeks!

Towards the end of last year, I received a letter which was then featured in the magazine. It was signed ‘C.M’. In hindsight, I took the decision to publish it without thinking it through. Assumptions were then made as to who had written it and this therefore caused some unnecessary upset. I spoke to our distributors during our coffee morning and said that the latter part of last year had been my hardest yet as Editor due to the upsetting nature of some of the letters I had received. I have to now take the decision to not accept any letter addressed to the Editor unless it states the sender’s full name and return address.

As I have said before, if you can take the time to write to me with an opinion, please have the conviction to put your full name to it. I really don’t like including things like this in my Editor’s letter but felt I had to (and I hopefully won’t have to again)!

In our first Meet the Locals feature of 2024 we’re talking with Katie Beeson from the Princess Royal Sports Arena! No time like the present to start taking better care of yourself and the PRSA have so many options. Take a look on Page 5! If you wish to take part in Meet the Locals, please email me at the address below.

We are still on the lookout for any local groups or charities that would like a helping hand. We are a community publication and we’re here to help. Please email me if there’s something we can do for you.

I’m always contactable at Editor@kirtonnews.co.uk. I’d love to see some suggestions for our 2024 issues. Do you have an interest you’re passionate about, do you have any recipes to share or have you read any fantastic books lately? We’d be more than happy to include you!
