So no official - or unofficial - sending off. A bit of a let-down.
But my leaving party was a success. There was a video-assisted talk by my boss - very good, not too embarrassing (thanks, Tony) - followed by a probably-too-long speech by myself. Lots of people came; there was lots of drink (it was in a pub); and there was plenty of food.
A group of editors - past and present - came together for a photo:

Many more photos were taken which I might share another time.
Meanwhile ... Jan and I took part in a silent walk of witness between two churches in our village this Good Friday morning.
