A weekly newspaper is bidding farewell to its only editor to date as it celebrates its sixth birthday today.
Stroud Life was launched in 2008 and Jason Chare joined as its first editor in November of that year.
Now Jason has been appointed to a new role as head of production for Gloucestershire Media, overseeing production of daily titles the Gloucester Citizen and the Glooucestershire Echo.
Jason has been overseeing the subbing team at Gloucestershire Media since the death of Citizen chief sub Darren Powell in August.
Darren died on his 42nd birthday at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital after suffering a brain haemorrhage the previous month.
In his new role, Jason will head the subbing teams at both titles.
It currently has a circulation of 12,980 according to the most recent ABC figures.
