Deputy editor takes charge of nostalgia magazine after 35 years at weekly

A deputy editor who spent 35 years with a weekly newspaper has taken a new job editing a nostalgia magazine.

Lindsey Moore, formerly of the Craven Herald, has joined Country Publications as editor of its Yorkshire nostalgia magazine, Down Your Way.

She succeeds Kevin Hopkinson, a former chief reporter at the Herald and colleague of Lindsey’s in the late 1970s, who retires this month.

Kevin went on to spend 21 years with the Keighley News in various roles, mainly as sports editor, before taking voluntary redundancy in 2001 and joining Country Publications a year later.

He said: “I’m delighted to be passing on the role to an an old friend. A safe pair of hands who will bring an extra dimension and fresh look in these changing times for print media.”

During her newspaper career, Lindsey completed two six-month secondments at Wharfedale Newspapers, then based in Otley, and the Bath Chronicle.

She said: “It’s strange how things have gone full circle. It has been an absolute privilege covering the news in Craven for so many years, but it is time for a new challenge and I look forward to working with Country Publications.”

Lindsey’s move comes four years after former Herald editor Adrian Braddy also left the Newsquest-owned title to join Country Publications, taking over the editorship of regional interest magazine Dalesman.

    Is this publication written in the past future tense?
    No looking back now Lindsey (or perhaps yes!). Good luck.
