Wishing all our readers a happy Bedfordshire day!

Bedfordshire Flag

How are you celebrating Bedfordshire Day? Enjoying the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside? Making some Bedforshire lace? Or maybe you’re enjoying the local delicacy, the Bedfordshire Clanger.

Last year on Bedfordshire Day we were fortunate to catch up with David Gunns of Gunns Bakery on Bedford High Street.

David gave us a masterclass in Clanger making and here’s a reminder…

Of course, you don’t have to save yourself until Bedfordshire Day each year to indulge in a savoury and sweet Clanger, as Gunns sell them six days a week.

Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
