Farewell to our volunteer Editor, retiring after 35 years!
Mrs Fleur Speakman, volunteer Editor of the Yorkshire Dales Review (our flagship membership magazine) has retired after 35 years service. We held a special lunch for Fleur
and her closest friends in Ilkley recently to celebrate her outstanding achievements.
For the last few years, Fleur has worked closely with graphic designer Michael Spencer of Briggs (our Dales based printers), pictured here with Fleur.
Mark Corner, our Chairman, said in his tribute to Fleur "On behalf of members and Trustees and the thousands of enlightened readers over the years, I would like to thank
Fleur and express admiration for what she has achieved. The Review has provided a window on the Dales, highlighting its beauty and its people but also the challenges it faces."
The current (Summer) Review is Fleur's last as Editor - future editions will be edited by Sasha Heseltine with support from Lynn Leadbeatter, Trustees and volunteers. Email us to suggest articles or items about the Dales for future issues.
