We are really pleased to welcome Gavin Dunlop to the team. Gavin has been known to us for many years and his guidance on all matters skiing related have kept us safe on the slopes around the world. In a lifetime devoted to the snow, Gavin is still naff at making snowballs, but his knowledge and contacts can never be brought into question.
Welcome too to the Ashford Advertiser Group. At Sphinx we are always looking at opportunities to widen the readership of our features and bringing David Powell and his team on board means a healthy injection of new readers in the Kent region. Perfect for those travel features based around operators using London's Gatwick Airport, the Channel Ports, or the Channel Tunnel/Eurostar.
