Wish Keith well for the future

It was with regret that I read in the Hastings Observer that Keith Ridley (as editor-in-chief for Johnston Press in East Sussex, among his many responsibilities within the newspaper world) says that he will be leaving his post on Friday, January 30) but will continue being involved with the Hastings Observer part-time as a consultant editor.

I have never met Mr Ridley face-to-face until through this article with his print photograph. I have though had the privilege of the occasional email with regards my writing.

I give my sincere thank you for this with regards my words over the years and wish him good luck for the future.
