Academy Bikeworks in the Local Newspapers

Standard article.jpg

So, we’ve been open for just over a week now, and we’ve been very lucky to be supported by both local newspapers, Bromsgrove Advertiser and Bromsgrove Standard.

Not only have both papers published stories online and shared them on their respective social media channels, but we’ve also featured in the printed editions too!

The support and enthusiasm from both publishers has been phenomenal and their work has really helped to raise awareness of Academy Bikeworks within the local community. We’ve been flooded with well wishes and enquiries and it means so very much to us!

We wanted to ensure that new riders, or people thinking of returning to or starting cycling, knew that there was a local repair workshop on their doorstep, and the local newspapers have certainly done that, so a massive thank you to staff at both newspapers for helping us to spread the word.

If you haven’t seen the Advertiser article or the Standard article online then check them out!

Alternatively you can visit the Advertiser E-edition and Standard E-edition to see a digital replica of the printed article.

We want to say a particular thank you to Tristan Harris and the team at the Bromsgrove Standard for putting us on page 2 of their newspaper and for discussing our story on their weekly podcast which you can also listen to!
