2009 in pictures! 

Our favourite snap-shots and videos from the year gone by
 
Well, what a year 2009 has been!
 
As 12 months go, it's definitely been our busiest ever - and that's saying something. We've had the highs of the BBC Big Weekend and  covering numerous sporting events across the town. But in contrast, we've also covered stories we wish we didn't have to, such as the 100th repatriation passing through Wootton Bassett.
 
So here it is, the SwindonWeb snap shot of 2009...
