So long and thanks for all the stories

Flicking through the year’s Echoes (or Echos, as Terra prefers) offers a chance for reflection, as does an examination of our front page, designed by Ewan Williams and Jeremy Austin.

There are a lot of amazing people in our community doing really good things and it’s a privilege to be trusted to tell their stories.

It takes a lot of people to put out The Echo, from our walkers and distributors, printers, advertisers, sales staff, admin staff and contributors. Thank you to everyone for the hard work and enormous effort you put in. We put out a great paper and we couldn’t do it without the contribution you make.

An extra end-of-year thanks to the editorial team: Steve Cox and Meril Fisher have battled valiantly against a recalcitrant computer system with laughter and patience (and the occasional swear word); Liina Flynn joined us this year and has added spark, humour and verve; Andy Parks keeps coming up with new and interesting story ideas; S Sorrensen’s wide, dry wit continues to add personality to The Echo; and Terra Sword, who is the hardest-working and most professional person I’ve ever worked with and also often provides a voice of reason.

Finally, thanks to our readers. Thanks for letting us know what you’ve liked and what you haven’t (the website is much better now), thanks for calling us about story ideas and thanks most of all for reading us.

See you in 2010.

Peace.
