I am sad to announce that this is my last working week with the North Devon Gazette after almost 20 years.
The company is relaunching the paper and taking it in a new direction, so I am taking the opportunity to seek out new horizons and other pastures.
I’ll be on leave until February 23 and will still pick up emails so please do drop me a line or find me on Facebook if you want to chat.
Two decades at one newspaper seems like overkill but I never wanted to be anywhere else or doing anything else.
Famous people, politicians, animals, driving a lifeboat, getting in a pen with wolves, so many different experiences that I can barely recall half of them.
It has been an incredible rollercoaster and I have met some amazing people along the way, all with their own stories, from serious campaigns through to the deeply touching and awe-inspiring, or just downright hilarious.
I have always said it is the people I meet that make the job for me and I will really miss all of you.
