Big hole left by out­go­ing re­porters

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

IT WAS with sad­ness that we heard the news of your news­pa­per los­ing the ser­vices of both Mort Smith and Lor­can Lovett.

Both re­porters went out of their way to as­sist lo­cal vol­un­teer groups in our vil­lage pro­mote the good work they are do­ing, and both gen­tle­men were pa­tient, sup­port­ive and kind, no mat­ter who they were in­ter­view­ing.

Mort took the time to make con­tact with al­most ev­ery vil­lage group when he started on the Com­mu­nity pages, and Lor­can is al­ways spo­ken of as ‘that lovely young man from the lo­cal pa­per’.

We wish them both well in their fu­ture en­deav­ours, and hope that some­one as ami­able and en­cour­ag­ing will pick up the com­mu­nity work they did.
