The back story . . . .
Nearing my ten year anniversary of living in Luton, I began writing about Luton and some of it’s favourable independent businesses and hidden hot spots on social media.
I was amazed at just how many people engaged with it! Then it got me thinking, just where were the local bloggers at?
There was no real go-to-blog celebrating everything Luton has to offer!
Look, I know Luton gets a lot stick and bad press. I mean 24 Hours In Police Custody has done us no favours. (Yet we all still watch it and try to see if we can spot someone we know!). Guilty.
But beneath the crime rates and the endless supply of soulless chicken shops; lives a community filled with independent retailers with fantastic characters; local restaurants with home-made food to die for and spectacular scenery you might not even know existed.
Luton has plenty to offer and to be proud of, you just need to know where to find it.
So the next time you rush off to make plans out of town, consider Luton before you do.
That’s where ‘The Luton Project’ can help. This blog will bring you the very best that Luton has to offer (based on my opinion of course).
And who am I?
I’m the twenty-something ex-journalism student that came to Luton and never left.
