Postcards from the edge

Okay, I know the general ethos of this blog is to be positive about Swindon but here’s a teeny, tiny rant…

Looking for postcards to use with my ESOL student I discovered how elusive they are. Why? They appear only to be available in W H Smith’s, and the library – and don’t get me started on Swindon’s tourist information centre being moved up there – really in a central position that is now – NOT.

I was expecting to find them at the very least at Asda and at Martin’s in the West Swindon Centre. It would be good to see some in cafes and pubs in the town centre as well as other retail outlets. Is that too difficult to arrange? I know other people have experienced this frustration.

Luckily Lydiard Park came to the rescue. I live close by so had a walk up there to purchase a small selection.

Just sometimes I can’t help thinking that Swindon is its own worst enemy when it comes to promoting the town and the many great things about it…..

Rant over. I’m stepping down from the soap-box as you read. Have a good day. 🙂

    Perhaps there is a niche in the market there? I’ll check what there is out in sunny 18th century Highworth.
    Highworth is well worth a visit and with a 10 minute bus service from the town centre what could be easier for an relaxed day out?
