I’ll keep it short and sweet so you have more time to do the important stuff of reading your magazine in print and online!
My name is Jon Stokoe, I’m a proud Yorkshireman and hail from Whitby, although I am now based in Skipton and looking forward to making the most of this incredible opportunity to be only the seventh custodian of this Yorkshire institution.
I know all about the Yorkshire coast having lived there for nearly 40 years, the Dales less so. But what it does mean is I now have the perfect excuse to explore every nook and cranny of this wonderful county and meet as many of you as possible in the course of my duties up hill and down dale.
I’m taking over a very talented team and face the challenge of filling those rather large shoes being vacated by Adrian Braddy and wish him well as he leaves for pastures new.
So thank you to everyone who has been in touch with me so far by post, phone, email, Facebook and Twitter to wish me well – I’ll endeavour to do you, and those six editors who have gone before me, proud.
Yours in Yorkshire,
