THIS is not so much a letter to the editor, but a letter about the editor.
I want to offer my thanks to Les Baker for his stewardship of The Crow.
He has edited it in the fine traditions of his predecessors, while imprinting on it his own brand of good humour and clear transmission of local news.
This has been done without bias and with a keen appreciation of what the people of Royston and its surroundings feel about their communities.
We shall miss him in this capacity, but I'm sure that we all hope that he will be able to contribute to our town and district in all sorts of ways for many years to come.

North Herts District Council
ON behalf of the Royston Labour Party can we wish Les Baker a long and happy retirement.
Although he has only lived in Royston for 30 years, Les has become part of the fabric of our community, not only as the editor of The Crow for the past eight years, but in many other roles including spells as a town councillor and district councillor.
Towns like Royston need people like Les Baker. People who are well respected and central to the life of the town, but who at the same time are prepared to speak their mind and highlight the concerns of the population.
I am sure this is not the last time we will hear of him, but for now I am sure all The Crow readers will agree that he will be a hard act to follow.
