Weekly editor set to go into music teaching

A long-standing weekly editor has retired from her job and is set to become a music teacher.

Viv Hargreaves, who has edited Gloucestershire weekly The Forester under the ownerships of both Northcliffe Media and Tindle Newspapers, has left the title and is now holidaying in South America

On her return, it is understood that she intends to start a new career as a music teacher.

Viv has been replaced as editor of The Forester by her former deputy, Rob Harris.

In a further move, Mark Salter has moved from The Forester to become editor of the Gloucester Review, Tindle Newspapers’ recently-launched rival to The Citizen.

The title was launched in February after Citizen publisher Local World launched a new weekly edition of the Citizen into The Forester’s Forest of Dean patch.

The Forester was originally sold to Tindle by Northcliffe, LW’s predecessor company, in September 2010.

Tindle Newspapers has made no formal announcement of the job moves, but they were confirmed to HTFP by managing director Brian Doel.

    I worked with Viv at the Citizen and she was a joy to work with … but I have to say, her new career choice sounds a million times better than the miserable world of journlalism. Happy for her but envious!!!
