Final Front Page For Swindon's 'Pravda' Paper?

The monthly, local publication that you pay Swindon Borough Council to produce, have you recently read a copy?

Central government isn't a fan of local council-produced newspapers, including our own Swindon News.

Eric Pickles (Local Government Secretary) isn't keen on "town hall Pravdas" pretending they're real, independent newspapers.

Swindon Centric hasn't received a copy of Swindon News for over a year and doubts a majority of residents know of it's existence. The current issue and previous ones are available as pdf files and provide an interesting record of what's in the council's 'to do' list, month-to-month.

Swindon Centric Says ; The name Pravdas has been applied to the Swindon Advertiser by some at Talk Swindon, it appears the name, for all different publications, is back in favour!
