Raise a glass to the Liverpool Post, as a wonderful paper says farewell

The last Liverpool PostVery, very sad to see the final publication of a great newspaper institution. On December 19th 2013 the Liverpool Post was published for the very final time.The Liverpool Post statistics

 

 

 

 

These statistics say it all.

It was the paper where I began writing my wine column. The features staff enthused me  and urged me to continue, despite my own misgivings that I wasn’t making any sense! Perhaps I wasn’t and they were being nice.

I’ve retrieved some of the pieces that were published in the paper in my early days, from February 2012, and they appear on this blog tagged “Liverpool Post”.

My contribution to this paper was but a dust molecule in its wonderful history, but I’m proud to have been part of it.
