The End of an Era …
As many of you will already know, this edition of the Christ Church Magazine will be the last one edited by Muriel Palmer. She is stepping aside to focus on finishing her book about World War I in time for the Centenary of the ending of hostilities in late 1918.
We have been fortunate to have her at the helm and her drive, determination and tenacity have brought this magazine to where it is today. Many readers comment on the mix of articles between the covers and much of this is due to Muriel’s persistence in cajoling contributors to meet deadlines and share their interests for a wider audience. It has resulted in a magazine which members of Christ Church have been glad to share with friends and neighbours as part of our ongoing witness to what God is doing amongst us
The excellent template she has set up and the very high standards she has set are there for all to see. Her commitment in printing and collating the many pages for each edition, ably helped by Nicholas and a stapler, has protected us from the less glamourous, labour-intensive side of producing such a publication.
The overwhelmingly positive response and comments made as part of our recent Magazine Questionnaire show what a good job has been done and our hope is that we can maintain the standard for future editions.
Thank you, Muriel, for your enthusiasm for the project, your skills on the computer and your practical work in getting the magazine out there for us to enjoy and share. We wish you well in your endeavours as your book takes shape and look forward to seeing it in print.
