Editor resigns over Full House's move to Essex

Essential Publishing's real-life weekly, Full House, is relocating from Holborn in central London to Chelmsford in Essex, prompting the loss of some key editorial staff.

The editor, Liz Jarvis, has handed her job over to Dave Claridge. She said: "This has been a very hard decision as I'd wanted an editorship for ages and had already had a positive impact on the magazine's design, content and sales.

"At one point I seriously considered making the commute, but as I live in Wandsworth it simply isn't feasible for me to do this on a daily basis.

"A fast-paced magazine like Full House needs a full-time, office-based editor and stepping down felt like the grown-up thing to do."

Jarvis had previously been an associate editor at News Magazines' Love It!

She replaced Sam Taylor, who was also on the Love It! launch team, at Full House. Taylor left the title to become the new editor of ACP-Natmags' Real People.

Assistant editor Shannon Kyle has also left Full House and will be freelancing until a suitable position arises.

Replacement editor Claridge has most recently been editor of Real magazine, which closed in March, just weeks after announcing its intention to change its frequencyfrom fortnightly to monthly.

Full House's ABC figure fell 23 per cent year-on-year in the last six months of 2006, to 181,555
