AS 2021 comes to a close, we look back at the year and the most popular stories on our Malvern Observer website.
We have loved bringing you all the latest news, sport and entertainment over the past 12 months and the interaction with our readers during the past year – both on our website and on social media.
Since January 1, more than 96,000 people have logged onto the Malvern Observer website, with almost 385,000 page views.
As is probably true in the national news, our best-read stories have been dominated by Covid-19 – whether it be about vaccination centres or the latest news and figures on the different variants.
Stories involving the emergency services also continue to be popular, along with our county council election coverage.
But there have been plenty of others which have caught your attention.
The unveiling of 63 new affordable homes in Malvern was extremely popular in October. Click below to read the full story.
In July shocking footage released by Network Rail of children playing on a train line pedestrian crossing was extensively viewed. Click below to see it.
And plans for a new care home on the former Malvern Hospital site also caught your eyes in January.
Two arrested and drugs being seized – along with £20,000 in cash – was the most popular read in April.
But the best-read story of the year was in March – about a new dairy vending machine boasting ‘the freshest milk you can get’. Click below to read it.
It certainly has been a very eventful 2021 and promises to be another busy one in 2022.
