SITE STATISTICS:

In terms of statistics for Stroud Community TV website we’ve had to change to a different SiteAnalytics so it is hard to compare with previous months. According to this new company we are averaging 568 visits each day; many of those don’t stay long so it is still hard to assess the level of support for the site but it does seem to be growing slowly.
