T hanks to all of you who stopped to say hello at our stands at Countryfile Live and Birdfair in August. It’s always a pleasure for the editorial team to get to speak to readers. It stops us working in a bubble, hoping we’re giving people what they want to read. It’s nice to hear we are, but it’s also good to know what else might be of interest.
We’ll have another opportunity to meet and greet when we take our stand to the Wildlife and Safari Travel Show at the Harrogate Convention Centre on September 29 and 30. I’m going to be moderating a talk on the Saturday night between wildlife photographer Sue Flood and natural history TV presenters Lucy Cooke and Miranda Krestovnikoff and I’m hoping we’ll come back with lots of ideas for future articles.
All of these shows bring us in contact not only with our readers but with potential contributors and a chance to chat over new ideas with existing ones, which ultimately I hope will make the magazine even better.
