We’d like to take a moment to wish all our readers and all Prestonians a very Merry Christmas.


2014 has been a heck of a year for Blog Preston and the team as we feel we’ve established ourselves as one of the go-to places for finding out what is happening in our city.

And we couldn’t have done it without you. Your comments, your pictures and your passion for doing wonderful things in Preston and showing it is one of the most vibrant and newest cities in the UK.

We can’t help but feel a little optimism for Preston as 2015 creeps around the corner. The city centre is enjoying a little bounce at the moment with a flurry of new openings. Preston seems determined to eat and drink its way out of a recession.

While there are tough decisions to take in 2015, with both Town and County Hall’s staring into a very tough financial settlement, we know we’ll do what Prestonians always do. We’ll dig in and find a way.

That’s our spirit with Blog Preston. We dig in and find a way to ensure you’re kept abreast of the latest news and events in the city.

We’ll be taking a bit of time to recharge and regroup over Christmas, so apologies in advance for a slight break in the normal volume of news and stories arriving in your inbox or social feeds.

Our app is one thing we’d like to highlight as our major achievement this year. Nearly 1,500 Prestonians have downloaded it and are enjoying receiving the headlines direct to the palm of their hand.

We’re seriously proud to serve you as a city, and we hope the way we cover Preston makes you proud too.

Please raise a glass to all that happened in 2014, what’s to come in 2015 and we hope you, your families and loved ones have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
