AboutContribute to BlogPreston
Blog Preston is set up to act as a hub of news, views and information about the city of Preston in Lancashire, UK.
The inspiration for this blog came from the St Albans Blog which records life in St Albans, so if it can happen there, it can happen for Preston.
Blog Preston was originally set up in January 2009 and thankfully it’s been more than a new years resolution. We do our best to cover the goings on in the city, from local news, crime, sport and we have an eye for nice photos of the city too. It’s read by over 10,000 Prestonians every month.
We used to run ‘Preston Blog’ as it was known on a free wordpress site, but as it proved so popular we moved to a proper domain name and got a swish new site.
