Farewell and Thank You

You may remember from the last issue of ECN that this will be Chris Osman’s final edition as ‘Articles Editor’.

The ECN Team wish Chris and her husband much time and happiness together in their new home on the 'drier side' of the Country.

We would like to thank Chris for the considerable time and effort that she has dedicated to ECN, and for encouraging us along the way. Since Chris joined us in May 2014, she has transformed the appearance of the printed pages and the format of ECN to bring us into the 21st Century.

She will be missed by all of us in ECN, and I am sure by the contributors too, whom she regularly contacted.

Contributors  should please note the address to which articles should be sent for future issues:                                                                                      Andrew Niblett
