Born Again SwindonianI moved to Swindon back in the 1990s from a part of the country that had been devastated by the 1980s pit closures.

I was afforded opportunities and facilities that were not easily obtainable back in my part of Derbyshire / Nottinghamshire. And that’s partly, but not entirely, what lays behind my fondness for, and advocacy of, Swindon and the decision to build this Swindon-centric blog. Don’t get me wrong: I’m as aware as anyone of what could be different and better. I simply try to look beyond that and see what’s beyond that – and there’s lots. As this blog can testify.
