GlosHour has many great contributors including local jewellers, accountants, libraries and restaurants to name a few.

New Hosts

As you can imagine hosting #gloshour every Wednesday is a commitment and some I just cannot do so decided to look for a few backup hosts to run a 2nd #gloshour account. This can be scheduled to suit local volunteers that have contributed in the past.
