#SoGlosDiscovery hits the road in Gloucestershire

Have you spotted the new #SoGlosDiscovery around the county yet? Unveiled as part of our 10-year anniversary celebrations, the new branded Land Rover Discovery symbolises everything SoGlos stands for, and has been turning heads thanks to its bold styling.

It’s also useful for transporting the team around Gloucestershire, and is the star of a regular new Instagram competition series where readers are challenged to guess the location it’s featured at.


Please do give us a wave if you see the #SoGlosDiscovery out and about!

#soglos10 party is a sparkling success

After months of planning by the team, we were thrilled to host the #soglos10 party with a guestlist of sponsors, clients and partners, marking a milestone decade of digital success for SoGlos.

More than 200 guests joined together in the iconic Pittville Pump Room last night to celebrate the special occasion, with drinks, canapes, live music from Vince Freeman and his band, networking and great goodie bags making the event sparkle.

Group publisher, James Fyrne, had the honour of welcoming guests and talking about SoGlos’s growth in his speech, while David Emery from The Cheltenham Trust – which the event was held in association with – also took to the stage to say a few words.

Georgia Boon from Allsorts Gloucestershire, SoGlos’s charity of the year, drew the raffle of prizes – including everything from a signed Gloucester Rugby shirt to Harriet Sanders clutch bag – raising £500 for the charity.

The event also saw the unveiling of a very exciting new addition for 2018, the SoGlos Gloucestershire Lifestyle Awards.

Thanks to everyone for helping to celebrate the special occasion in style!

#soglos10 party goodie bags ready to go!

It’s been a busy couple of months at the SoPublishing HQ, as we’ve had the extra task of organising a fittingly fantastic party to celebrate SoGlos’s 10 year anniversary.

Always fans of a theme, we set out to make sure our discerning guests would also go away with a great goodie bag – sourcing 10 lovely local things to tie in with the 10 years SoGlos has been running.

The only thing is we didn’t quite realise how much space 250 goodie bags would take up! So we’re looking forward to getting some office space back once the party comes around next week, on Thursday 2 November 2017 at the iconic Pittville Pump Room.
