Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye…


It is with great sadness that I have to announce today’s will be the last edition of East Grinstead Online.

Since our launch two years ago East Grinstead Online has been a huge success in terms of readership, support and community involvement and I am really – REALLY – appreciative of all the kindness and enthusiasm we have had for the project, which has demonstrated if nothing else, what a fine heart the town has.

But I have not had a single day off in all that time and with a new newspaper to be launched in East Grinstead shortly, I am very much hoping that my efforts will be rendered redundant – there is nothing like a bit of competition to ginger everyone’s ideas up.

We owe enormous gratitude to our readers, to everyone who has contributed stories and pictures, and to our regular columnists who have kept us informed and amused across a range of subjects for the past two years. 

Thank you all – I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
