Retired teacher Brian McConkey, 84, steps down after eight year in the role
Lyme Regis Parish Church’s much acclaimed news magazine is set to close, having served the parish since 1885, unless another editor can be found.
Current editor Brian McConkey, a retired teacher of languages, specialising in German, will bring out his final edition in December after eight years in the role.
Mr McConkey, 85 next birthday, told The Midweek Herald: “I have enjoyed editing the Parish News but I feel that is now right for me to stand down to pursue my many other interests and to spend more time with my family.”
It is possible that the Golden Cap Magazine will include a larger subsection dealing with matters of interest to Lyme Regis, but this is dependent on a sub editor to produce it.

A church spokesman said: “Brian has done a superb job in a most professional way, and we are very sorry to lose him.”
Mr McConkey retired as senior master at Desborough School, Maidenhead.
