A DIGITAL what’s on platform that spread out across the UK from Swindon is celebrating seven years of growth.

Entrepreneur Liz Ledger started Total Guide To in 2012 from her basement flat. She now has a core team of eight to create digital news and marketing platforms covering Bath, Bristol, Reading and Manchester with future plans aiming at covering other towns and cities across the country.

Liz said: “I started with a vision for creating a guide for every city or large town around the UK for the local community, businesses, tourists, charities and other organisations to engage.

“It’s about embracing the amazing opportunity presented by digital while not forgetting the importance of knowing each other in the real world.

“It’s been an amazing journey for the business and for me personally.

“I’d like to thank my supportive team for their hard work and dedication and all of the businesses, charities and organisations who got behind us.”

Total Guide to, which has its HQ on Hyde Road, is set to roll out its regular business meetings around the UK.

The next Total Guide To event is at the Marriott Hotel Swindon on May 24.
