As we rapidly approach Xmas and New Year, it is only right that I take a moment to say thank you to those, without whom, we wouldn’t have the UKHH and that helped in some way or form through 2013.
The wonderful editorial and administrative teams that work so hard and often around the clock as publishing day approaches. The amazing list of contributors that take the time to write articles, submit images, but what is also humbling about our contributors, is that new ones are continually coming through which is amazing to see.
To our superb list of partners, from all aspects of life, preservation and heritage, we value each and every one.
Finally, to you, our readers, without whom we wouldn’t be doing all this, you are what make the UKHH. We are continually striving to provide something exciting and different, and given recent figures, we’re obviously doing something right!
2013 has most certainly been full of highlights, both for us at the e-zine and the preservation & heritage world on a whole. A truly memorable year, with a lot of plans coming to fruition which many said would never happen. But, through the many hours of hardwork by people whom shared the same vision of making it happen, it paid off, and in fine style too. The Great Gathering, the return to action of 45699 ‘Galatea’ together with the extension and mainline connection of the Bluebell Railway to name but a few.
As we look ahead to 2014, there are many exciting prospects on the horizon for the UKHH. New partnerships, galas, exclusive articles, one off special features and much more besides. Of course, we shall be celebrating the e-zines 2nd birthday in fine style in March as well! Most certainly, there will be something for everyone, covering all heritage aspects from across the United Kingdom.
All in all, thank you for a great 2013 and let’s make 2014 even better! Our final e-zine of 2013 will be released on the 27th December, full of what you have come to love and expect from us at UKHH HQ and much more besides.
May I wish you all A Merry Christmas and Happy & Prosperous New Year from everyone on the team at UKHH.
