Goodbye and Hello!
Tiree Community Business, the owners of AnTirisdeach, are sorry to have to announce that we are saying goodbye to our An Tirisdeach Editor, Donna MacLean.
Donna is already an extremely busy lady, not only looking after an active, year round portfolio, of cultural events for the Tiree Development Trust, but in addition, she has also recently become a Councillor for Tiree Community Council. Donna has been a wonderful Editor during her time with An Tirisdeach, always producing flawless work to a tight schedule, in her usual calm and unflappable manner. The additional Community Council work will however take a lot of Donna’s time, and she feels that now is the moment to pass on the reins to someone else.
We will miss having Donna working with us, and we hope that readers will join the Directors of Tiree Community Business Ltd in thanking Donna for her time as Editor, wishing her every success for the future, particularly the important task of representing Tiree on the Community Council. However, there is also good news, as this means that it is time to say hello, and to introduce to An Tirisdeach readers our new Editor, Rou Worsely.
Rou will be taking over from Donna over the next few issues, but readers should see a seamless handover. Rou is an experienced illustrator, graphic designer, animator and creative writer, having run her own design and illustration business here on the island, since graduating from the University of Durham in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in Visual Communication (Animation).
Rou has many exciting ideas for An Tirisdeach and is eager to get started, and again, we hope that readers will join us in welcoming Rou as Our new An Tirisdeach editor. You can write to Rou with any comments, ideas, articles, or just to say hello at; firstname.lastname@example.org
