Blog: Chris Brook-CarterMerry Christmas

Chris Brook-Carter | 23 December 2003

And so the end of another year – just-drinks’ fifth and my third as Editor. It’s been quite a year for the industry – a full review of which can be seen in the current Feature of the Week – and an eventful one too for us here at just-drinks.

The year began with the implementation of our management briefing service and a change of address and ended with the arrival of a new news editor at the magazine, Olly Wehring.

We have plenty of plans to continue improving the service we provide our readers next year and look forward to introducing you to them as they come in.

In the meantime all that is left for me to do is wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year and thank you for your continued support.

We will see you all in 2004. Merry Christmas.
