Bringing relevant news, sport and features to Stroud and surrounding towns and villages, Stroud Times has notched up its first 12 months online.
Editor and co-founder Ash Loveridge said: “We asked Stroud and the surrounding district if it wanted a new independent news website that is devoid of inane clickbait and pop-up adverts, and the resounding answer was, and continues to be, yes. After a roller-coaster start and an incredibly busy year covering such a range of events, I find it hard to believe we’re already here, celebrating our first birthday.
“Our one-year anniversary is a testament to the dedication and incredible support we receive from our readers, which was overwhelming on day one and has remained so ever since.
“Our website’s audience continues to grow and we especially want to thank all our advertising partners and of course, our readers who have supported us in our journey so far, we look ahead to a bright future.”
Thank you, Stroud.
