Amanda Dean,

Scene Editor, scene@htrc.co.uk


After almost five years of editing Scene (51 editions to date) I am stepping down from the role. My final Scene will be at the end of this year.

And so, we are looking for a volunteer who would be willing to take on Scene production. If you are interested please do not hesitate to reply. I can provide you with what is involved and a template should you wish to continue with the same format but, be reassured, each Scene editor has used their own ideas and you would be welcome to do the same.

Although it can be time consuming to create Scene, it’s also rewarding to see a complete newsletter.

Finally a special thanks to Amanda Dean for her sterling work in editing Scene for the last 5 years!!!

Amanda is stepping down as editor at the end of this year so do drop her a line by clicking on this link: scene@htrc.co.uk  if you have appreciated the magazine and are curious about getting involved in keeping it going.
