Somehow, we’re over halfway through 2022 already. In the middle of summer, between vacations, heatwaves and Eid, it has felt like a sleepy month in many regards. If we follow the world news, of course, this is far from the case – from wars to threatened civil liberties, there are concerning stories coming in from around the globe. This Editor’s thoughts are with the people of Ukraine, the citizens of North America, and so many other people in dire situations that deserve our attention.
In terms of our features this month, it has been a return to Endeavour for many familiar names and faces, just as our Amazing World this month is celebrating the return of the bison to the UK! However, it is not returns so much as farewells on my mind, as this issue will be my final full issue of Endeavour Magazine. As of mid-August, I will be stepping down from the Editor’s chair and moving on to new horizons after six memorial years with Littlegate. I will miss the people in our team, who have been much like a family, and I will also miss our regular interviewees, and the wonderful excuse I’ve had to speak with so many fascinating people from around the globe. This magazine has shared many exciting stories with you over the years, and some of the people we’ve met through them will remain fondly in my memory.
I wanted to take this moment to thank you all for reading, for sharing your stories with us and for following our little magazine on its journey all these years. Soon, our teams shall be growing at Littlegate, and under a new Editor, I have no doubt that exciting changes are in store. In the meantime, I wish all the best to everyone we have featured and hope your company journeys will continue to thrive. And to everyone reading – I hope you enjoy this issue, and that you have enjoyed the ones that came before it! Take care, everyone, and thank you for your indulgence these past six years.
