Thanks War­wick, it’s been won­der­ful

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS | OPINION - — Martin Tif­fany Act­ing edi­tor

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!
