CHERYL GIBBS: Inspirational Katie touched the hearts of so many in her short life

Have your say

Hello, my darling readers.Are you sitting comfortably, sipping your Rosie Lee and dunking your biccie?

After nearly 12 years Heather James is leaving The News.

Hankies out! It’s a tough decision, but due to work I need to do helping dementia patients and writing e-books, something had to go.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the rollercoaster of my life and agreed (or disagreed) with some of my rants.

Thanks to the lovely folk at The News who ‘de- naughtied’ my words pre-print.

And thanks to you for travelling along with me through happy and sad times.

But you’re not rid of me yet – I’m planning to write an online blog. So until then, it’s leg over ’n’ out. xxx
