Born Again Swindonian

Written by me, Angela Atkinson, Born Again Swindonian celebrates Swindon – the town that I call home and that I’ve come to love in the half-century+ years I’ve lived here. 

Alongside this blog I’ve written three Swindon-related books, am chair of Swindon Civic Voice and a devoted grandma.    

Wrapped around Born Again Swindonian, are the activities by which I earn a crust. Namely: content marketing articles for, or articles about, Swindon & Wiltshire businesses for placement on this blog in either/or the Swindon in Business and Made in Wiltshire sections. 

I also offer proof-reading & proof-editing services – with the focus on business blogs. So, if you can’t write, don’t want to write or are too busy to write – get in touch.

3D Printing – SED Developments

It might surprise you to know that 3D printing has been around since the 1980s. Yet it’s only been in recent years that the technology developed to the point where it allowed printing on a small scale. And with that, the explosion of 3D Printing into the home began.

Bluebird Care Launch Recruitment Drive

Bluebird Care Launch Recruitment Drive

Bluebird Care Swindon has launched a recruitment campaign. It comes in a bid to encourage more people to join the care sector in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The company – whose carers are at the frontline in supporting vulnerable people during the Coronavirus – has joined Bluebird Care’s ‘It’s Time to Care’ campaign. The campaign is urging people to consider various care roles so they can help more vulnerable people stay well and independent at home.

A word about our sponsors

When I’m not being Born again Swindonian and writing Swindon-related books I offer proofreading, editing and writing services as AA Editorial Services.

Food, drink and cafe culture

Swindon has a burgeoning independent eating and coffee scene. You’ll find write-ups on just some of them here.

Heritage, culture and the arts

Swindon is so much more than its rich and varied industrial history. It’s been described as a surprising creative hotspot. And it is. Read some of the posts in this section and you’ll see for yourself. I’ve lumped heritage together with arts and creativity because so often they are intertwined. The image shows the front cover of an issue of the very splendid Swindon Heritage magazine. Always worth a read

Swindon in business

A departure here from the rest of the site. Here are posts about Swindon businesses – many of them start ups like my own AA Editorial Services. Some, but not all, are paid advertorials. I have to earn a crust. That said, I know all of them personally, I’ve met them in some business capacity. I do business with many of them & trust in the rest.

Swindon's sons & daughters

A whole host of writers, actors, musicians and other notable people have connections with, or roots in, Swindon. Read about some of them here. The sculpture in the photo is of the Swindon-born actress Diana Dors. It’s located outside the Shaw Ridge cinema complex in West Swindon.
