“Our audience has grown every month. We hit our first one million unique visitors in September, rising to a new high last month of 1.4m.

“We’d like to thank our readers and Glasgow as a whole, from the independent businesses to Glasgow City Council, who have welcomed us and encouraged our positive approach.
