All members of staff are working extremely hard at present, not just putting together our four monthly magazines but also preparing two new visitor guides – one for the Dales & South Pennines and one for the area to the east of the A1 all the way to the coast, the Tees to the north and Don to the south. We’ve several books to produce and our next calendars… and, of course, our websites which are becoming more and more important to the business. It’s certainly a stressful time here, but when I heard of those Yorkshire soldiers killed thousands of miles from home I hit a great wall of perspective. The ‘boys’ killed out there were the same age as my son and I also have other family members in the forces. During a minute’s silence at Huddersfield Town FC on Saturday to honour the local lads killed in Afghanistan I noticed around me a few tears being shed. Let’s hope their sacrifice is not in vain. I know that those serving abroad receive our magazines and read our blogs and websites. I hope our words and photos remind you of home in Yorkshire.
