The new editor asked Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne, Skepta and Malik to write about something they love.

The letter in full reads:

Yorkshire makes most people think of rich farmland and long country walks. Yorkshire for me means Bradford: my home, my childhood memories, my family. It’s my identity.

Bradford has a character and soul that makes it totally distinct from any other place in Britain. It’s a multicultural hub and the people are unapologetically patriotic: 'I am from Bradford.

There’s a sense of pride knowing you hail from a place, to feel you are accepted into the secret code of its knowledge.

It’s a place that has seen its fair share of hardship and wears its scars boldly. A place with a long history of survival, an essential beat in the heart of what makes Britain great.
