As most of you are aware, I’ve been editing the MFWI newsletter for over four years, having taken on the role in April 2019. This edition is my fiftieth edition (yes, 50!), and marks a handover to our Federation Secretary Georgina Glynn (George), who will be taking over newsletter production. As we make this transition, I’ll be here to give a helping hand as the process is bedded in, but from this issue on, George is in charge!
Both George and I have access to the Newsletter email account and there is no change to how you will submit information, or to deadlines. To make George’s life easier, please try to keep your submissions to 150 words, and send photos at their original size, as separate attachments wherever possible. I’m sure you’ll welcome George to this role and we both thank you for your patience as she gets to grips with the newsletter.
Whilst the workload of the newsletter is not something I will miss (my friends are frankly sick of hearing, “Sorry, I have a newsletter to finish!”), I have very much enjoyed the interaction I have with all of you, and I do feel I’ve got to know so many members, many of whom I’ve still not met in person. It continues to be a wonderful way to keep up with the goings-on in the Federation. Thank you all for your ongoing support of our Federation and the newsletter in particular.
George already has some fresh new ideas for future newsletters and I certainly look forward to seeing them!
Very warm wishes
