Another Howler!

May I (very) respectfully suggest that you improve on your general level of proof-reading.

The six-page "Around Britain" feature on Somerset includes one page headlined "Archives & Resources for North Yorkshire"! This is just the latest in a long line of editorial errors (I usually manage to find at least a couple in each edition) and does nothing for the integrity of the magazine.

However, I do enjoy the magazine and have been a subscriber for quite a few years!

Yes, we had quite a few people point that one out. I'm afraid it was copy left over from a previous month and didn't get spotted by three pairs of eyes so apologies for that. Obviously we do try to be entirely error-free but there are a lot of words in our magazine and we are a small team. Having said that, even big teams let mistakes through as I often discover in newspapers and mainstream magazines, so I think the occasional error is probably inevitable with so many words coming out on a monthly basis. Having said that, we want to be getting better, not worse, so I'll keep an eye on things and try and reduce the number of howlers we publish!
