Wow! Blantyre Telegraph’s Facebook page has just hit 16,000 likes! Quite incredible for a town with only 17,000 population and a good indication of popularity also with people living elsewhere.
Amazingly, almost 2,000 people have joined the page since January so welcome to all the new readers here. With growing numbers, the page of course does become harder to manage, especially in being able to answer every message, so thank you for your patience and understanding.
16,000 readers. Not bad for a wee local news page which hoped to attract 200 people or so back in 2011! Your continued support is appreciated.
