Welcome to Stroudie Central, a community website for Stroud in Gloucestershire. The term Stroudie is an affectionate term thats grown into common usage over the years to describe the good natured residents of Stroud.

A lot goes on in Stroud, this site will try to capture the main changes. I also have many photographs taken over the years that I will be adding as and when I get time.

Items that aren’t news items such as walks or information on old buildings will normally be found under the ‘Out and About’ menu so won’t appear on the home page.

This site is more personal blog than anything else and has no claims to be a source of the latest news.

If you want to contribute anything such as article or news plus share old photos please get in touch here

Feel free to add your business to the directory and use the classified ads to pass on the items you no longer have a use for.

If you have an event you want published in the What’s On section there is a link in that section.

All photographs and website content are copyright (other than the twitter feed) and may not be used without permission. Feel free to ask though, I normally give it.

Other information can be found on another of my sites at http://www.nailsworth.com although I will probably be moving most of that to here at some point as so little happens in Nailsworth and the site needs a major overhaul!
