We are pleased to announce that Lou Hobhouse has been appointed the new editor of English Bridge. She has already begun working on her first issue, which will be February 2016.
Lou is based in Somerset where she has a nomadic bridge school. She has been teaching for over eight years. She plays regularly at 'Lovely Langport' bridge club and occasionally at Yeovil, Taunton and Wells.
Lou started her career working for the Financial Times, latterly for the newsletter department. In 1998 she was the launch editor of a 'rather dry' monthly magazine called Asian Infrastructure which continued to occupy her for about 10 years. Talking about her new appointment she said, "it's very exciting to be working on a magazine where the content focuses on my all-consuming passion, and a real privilege to be hob-nobbing with such great and clever contributors".
