Stroud News and Journal editor John Wilson has been singing the praises of Stroud on national radio.

He was invited to speak on talkRADIO's A Postcard From... slot, which is a feature of the Saturday show by Yasmeen Khan.

John described Stroud as a lovely working town, with a vibrant cultural and political scene.

He told of the huge public interest in the future of the Subscription Rooms, how the town had coped (and at times enjoyed) the recent heavy snowfall, and the campaign to save Wade's Field from development.
