I thought this was the best place to respond in
public.

From January 16, I will be a sub editor/writer in the
Trinity Mirror Southern central features unit in
Uxbridge.
The occasional piece by me will still end up in The
Guide secion of the Advertiser and Examiner, but I
will no longer be writing news, copy editing
Community Voice, writing my column, or be based in
Chalfont St Peter.

My last day is Friday, January 13. I shall still pop into
the forum, because I live in the Chalfonts.

It's a free country, adopt whatever PC stance you want. Just don't tell me which stance I should take just because it clashes with your opinion.

Best of luck in your new job, Sarah! I hope that the Advertiser is preparing a suitably flowery piece about your departure for next week's edition?

I used to be with it. But then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems scary and weird.

I doubt very much there'll be anything about me in the
main part of the paper Dan, as we don't write about
ourselves.
However, I have written a farewell column.. which
bows to popular demand!!

Oh and thanks for the kind wishes.

A decision made at Canary Wharf which we in Bucks, or our area head office in Uxbridge, have no influence on.

We didn't get a Christmas do so I doubt the company would pay for a leaving do.

50p?...

last weeks edition being thinner than a sheet of Izal!....

I have no more reason to buy it then! (unless I get another blow(up)job!!!!   Fnark!  ))

from now on I'm a Gazette reader.

Will you get your own "Sarahs Column" in the Gazette Sarah?

Have you been assigned any particular fields of assignment within the community?

Will we be reading about you on the Hillingdon website???

Have you told ol' krinksy to shove it!!!  

oooh! so many questions!!

I will be sub editing and arts and ents feature writing for all the newspapers in Trinity Mirror Southern, so that's papers across London, Surrey, Herts, Kent, Berks and Bucks. I won't be on the Hillingdon site because I don't live there and I won't be writing about it.

However I am going to see Edward Scissorhands the ballet to right about it for all the papers in the group.

There will be no more column.. ever more!

As for the size of the paper. It's always thin at Christmas because of the time of year, but remember it will return to full size next week and some weeks it's an extremely big 56 pages of news etc rather than our standard 48, plus The Guide, Motors, and Property sections and still the same price.

As I said earlier, this is not a decision made at this
office, but at head office.
We do not cover Maidenhead.

I have nothing further or new to write about though
Dan.
However, as a Chalfonts resident, I shall continue to
vent my spleen here whenever Chiltern District
Council
goes astray.
It seems Mr Goodrum and I have ended our
correspondence with him "taking my point on board".

Anyone really desperate to keep up with my
witterings can always search for my blogs.
However, these are not written politely as a
professional journalist, but as a person who vents
spleen and uses very bad language on occasion.

Be careful now, you can get in trouble for correcting spelling mistakes on his forum.

Blimey! I must have been having a seriously brain dead moment then.

Sid you're right. I've been in trouble for correcting spelling mistakes on a forum where I'm a moderator!!!!

Sorry, but I'm in panto mode and I'm a supply teacher (English specialism) so you're simply not going to get away with that.....
