Farewell to Docklands

Farewell to Docklands Image

By Bethany Williams

After four years and 44 editions of Docklands News the time has come for me to say goodbye.

Our September edition is my last as editor and so I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you.

Firstly, thank you to the advertisers who have invested in this wonderful community asset. Without your support we wouldn’t have Docklands News and I wouldn’t have had this amazing opportunity over the past four years.

Thank you to all of the interesting, knowledgeable and diverse people I have had the chance to meet and interview. I am so grateful for your time and for trusting me to share your stories with our readers.

And of course to our readers – thanks for picking up a copy of Docklands News each month and for sharing your feedback, ideas, letters to the editor and news tips with me.

To our team here at the Mediation Communications office – Southbank Local News editor Sean Car and designer Sen Bloom – thanks for making our workplace such a pleasant place, for your friendship and for all of the laughs.

Of course, I wouldn’t be writing this at all if it weren’t for Docklands News owner (and now, once again, editor) Shane Scanlan, who gave me this wonderful opportunity in the first place.

Thanks for your support and guidance over the past four years. I’m sure you’ll enjoy being back at the reigns of Docklands News once again.

I didn’t know all that much about Docklands or the people who live and work here when I started working at Docklands News back in 2012.

But, over the past four years I’ve discovered a wonderful community, full of passionate, interesting and engaged people.

There’s plenty going on in Docklands and, while my new position means I’ll no longer be working in the area, I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on what happens next.
