Your favourite posts!

So, I can hardly believe that the blog has been going for 3 years now! When I first started it on August 4th 2014 it was in response to a real concern that some people had a very dim view of Loughborough, and I wanted, not to change their view, but at least to tell the story of our town in a different way, through its people, its buildings, its history, and through its current day life. I hope, if you've been following me all this time, I've informed you, amused you and left you wanting to know more. If you've only just found the blog, do go and have a look at some of the older posts, accessible via the archive of posts, or the labels listed on the left-hand side. 

As is now usual at this time, I like to review the past year, and have a look and see which posts you've looked at the most. So, first these are the posts from this year with the most views - with links so you can click and go directly to the if you wish:

* 10th most popular post: From the rooftops, part 1 with 1363 views

For the coming year, I have some plans to re-vamp the site, and add some new things, as well as pruning out some of the pages and some of the information on the pages. Hopefully, this won't put you off reading! If there's anything you ever want me to investigate, do please leave a comment below (I know, it's not as easy as it should be) alternatively send me an email at the address on the About Me page (following the instructions about substitutions!).
