Viv Bowler and I would like to introduce ourselves as the two new editors for the OR magazine; Viv is head honcho, I’m Editor@Large. We would also like to introduce ourselves as being young and enthusiastic but unfortunately that wouldn’t entirely be true. We are certainly enthusiastic, but are young only in our outlook; so much so that recently we have thrown out every bustle in our wardrobes and burnt our stays.
The OR magazine is stuffed with tradition and very people centred; a fabulous tradition which we intend to preserve. However, in our new-broom role, we would like to make some changes, introducing a blog and a few amusing reminiscences from schooldays. We have agreed an amnesty with the school, which means that even if you recount a particularly awful piece of naughtiness, no detentions will be handed out. If you have had an interesting and unusual life, we’d love to hear from you. If you’ve had a particularly mundane life but are able to write a fascinating, witty feature about it, we’d be equally pleased to hear from you. Please let us have photographs related to the article that might be of interest to other ORs. (No photographs of Chippendales please, we already have plenty.)
If you are in contact with any ORs who might be interesting to feature, please get them to contact us or send us their contact details and Swiss bank account number. We would love to feature a variety of inspirational people, although if no one helps us to find them we might have to settle for people who are just inspiring i.e. still breathing. So please, get thinking!
Looking forward to hearing from you.
