Extra, extra: read all about it! Swindon Heritage magazine

I fully intended to get a copy of the SWINDON HERITAGE magazine (A quarterly magazine celebrating the rich and proud heritage of Swindon. A not-for-profit social enterprise) when it was launched earlier this year but somehow or other failed to do so. So, as today I was in the central library, I managed to remember to buy a copy of the second edition.

I’m not going to lie, I was somewhat excited to see that the front cover features Diana Dors, whose statue I have recently blogged about here and again here. Inside the magazine there is a 10 page feature on ‘Our Diana: The life and times of a movie star’ which I can’t wait to settle down to read. And what a co-incidence eh? 🙂

At £4.99 it’s not much more expensive (if at all????) than most glossy women’s magazines and has a lot less advertising and much more substance. And I wouldn’t say either, that you had to be a die-hard local history nut to find it interesting. I’m a born again Swindonian and have found plenty in it to be of interest but for readers that have long-standing connections with the town there must be many more resonances in its pages. So don’t be shy – give it a try!

Find ’em on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SwindonHeritage  and there’s also a website still under construction but worth bookmarking for future reference.
