“It’s not the first time I’ve successfully built and sold a local news website, and it won’t be the last. But for now, it’s time to take a break from the fast-paced news industry.

“I want to personally thank everyone who has supported Swindon 24’s growth so far –¬†including our 120,000+ readers, advertisers and emergency service press offices – because without you, it wouldn’t have become what is – the biggest independent news outlet in the town. I hope your support for the website will continue for many, many years.”
