New editor takes over at the Standard
Published 06/10/08



THE Henley Standard has a new editor.

He is Simon Bradshaw, 49, who comes from the Evening Standardin London where he has been a sub-editor for the past three years. Before that, he was editor of the award-winning Evening Argus in Brighton for seven years.

Mr Bradshaw, who has been married to Julie for 24 years and has a son, Jack, 16, was born in Amersham, Bucks, and curently lives in Burgess Hill, West Sussex.

He has worked for five other evening newspapers in England and Scotland and was executive editor of the Daily Record, then Scotland’s biggest selling daily newspaper. In the mid-Eighties, he spent a year as publicity officer for BBC Radio 2.

Mr Bradshaw said: “I am delighted to be taking over at such a successful newspaper and have been made very welcome by everyone at Higgs Group. I am looking forward to continuing the development of the Standard and www.henleystandard.co.uk”


Meanwhile, friends and colleagues packed into Leander Club last Thursday to mark the retirement of George Tuckfield, who has stepped down as editor after 18 years.

Higgs Group managing director Neil Ratcliffe and life president John Luker paid him warm tributes.

Mr Ratcliffe said: “We will remember you as a professional newspaper man, a strong leader, someone calm under pressure and, importantly for me, a safe pair of hands. I have no doubt that the success of the Standard in recent years and the excellent reputation the paper enjoys is in many ways a reflection of your experience, sound judgement and attention to detail.”

After thanking colleagues past and present, Mr Tuckfield said: “It has been a great pleasure to work at the Henley Standard and I am certainly going to miss it.”

Mr Tuckfield, who was presented with tickets from staff to the Barbarians versus Australia rugby match at Wembley in December, plans to spend more time with his wife Sue, children Sean and Tracey and five grandchildren, as well as spending more time watching his other great passion — cricket.
