As many of you will know, Heather Whitaker has decided to retire as Editor of Signpost after 10 years and 40 issues. The Parish Council wish to thank Heather for all the work she has put in to make the magazine the success it is today, informing and entertaining residents of happenings near and far.
The presses are waiting for the next issue and so the Parish Council is seeking a volunteer to pull future issues into shape. Although the title is that of ‘Editor’, Heather feels that ‘Formatter’ is a better description of the work involved in entering the articles and adverts into a desktop publishing program, as the sourcing of articles and advertisements, the proof-reading, and getting the final proof to the printers is handled by others.
If you feel you have experience or confidence in using a DTP program and can offer some of your time to help us, we’d love to hear from you. Please contact Sharon Ellis, Parish Clerk, in the first instance
(T: 07984075016; E: firstname.lastname@example.org). As a special introductory offer, Heather has offered to assist the new Editor with getting to grips with the work involved.
