Like most parents preparing to celebrate the first birthday of their baby, we intend to celebrate The Watsonia Bugle’s first birthday with a deep sense of pride, lots of alcohol, and a heightened social media presence. In a truly modern sense, we also intend to extend the celebration to a full “Birthday Week”, rather than just one piddly little day.

The last 12 months have provided a long and rewarding journey, as we continue to strive to deliver the most important news to you, our beloved readers. We’ve shared the highs and lows with you all and, as such, we extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you.

To celebrate the milestone, this week we’ll be re-visiting some of our favourite articles from the past year, as well as hosting a special birthday edition of our popular Q&A nights on our Facebook page. We’d love for you to celebrate with us, so please get involved by liking the posts, sharing them with your friends, joining us on the Q&A, and sharing your favourite Bugle memories with us all.
