As handover of SMT editorship from Andrew Charman to Suzanne Bradley progressed, it became clear that the role would need a greater familiarity with the software used to lay the magazine out than had initially been recognised.
Gareth Jones (Webmaster), as a regular user of the software concerned, already has these skills. The decision has therefore been taken, fully acceptable to all involved, that Gareth take over as SMT editor and that Suzanne retain her role as Bulletin Editor. Gareth is now preparing February SMT and Suzanne is likewise preparing February Bulletin.
Richard Huss will provide support to Gareth as required with web work and the need for further support in this area will be reviewed at the board meeting at the end of this month. Richard’s key projects associated with the show, on-line sales of advance entry ticket and design of the new Show web site are complete and content population is in progress, so this change does not compromise these activities.
A further announcement on mailing timelines for the February issues will be made in due course.
