2007 in pictures 

Our favourite snap-shots and videos from the year gone by

Well, what a year 2007 has been!

They say time flies when you're having fun, and we don't know about you but here at SwindonWeb we would certainly vouch for that.

When you think of the unbelievable people who have written themselves in to our history this year, it's hard not to smile at the successes of our town.
 
Boris Johnson in Swindon
What a 'magic' year:
we even managed to thrust one of
our Magic Roundabout t-shirts into the
hands of bumbling Boris Johnson

We've bumped into the likes of Tito Jackson, Noel Edmonds, McFly, Paulo Nutini, Danielle Lloyd, Trinny & Susannah, Ben Fogle, and much more.

Yes, you name it. The list of celebrities (some better known than others) is endless!

But there's no denying that we've also had some bad times, and with things like the serious flooding in July, to off-pitch dramas more recently at the County Ground, it's certainly been an unforgettable twelve months.

Most of the time we were there to capture things on camera and on video so check out our favourite bits of 2007.
