Thanks Warwick, it’s been wonderful
FOR the past two weeks I have had the privilege of filling in as editor of the Warwick Daily News while Kerri Moore took a well-deserved break.
It was my first visit to Warwick and I must say I have been impressed with your vibrant town and friendly people. I have been made to feel very welcome by everyone I have met.
Sure, I have had a couple of cranky phone calls from people who weren’t happy with something we had published, that is to be expected.
It is what a good newspaper is all about. It reflects what is happening in the community and can often act as a sounding board.
The fact that we get feedback – both good and bad – means two things. Firstly, we are doing our job well and secondly the community cares.
If the community didn’t care it would be a sad day indeed.
The important lesson here is – do not take what you have for granted.
Relish and enjoy the wonderful community and community spirit you have, many other towns could take a leaf out of your book.
And don’t forget the importance of your local newspaper.
The Daily News and the community go hand-in-hand to help make your town the special place it is.
Thanks for having me Warwick, I trust I will be seeing you again soon.
Go the Cowboys!
