Forest of Dean Bluebells launch Quoakle Web Media’s Glorious Gloucestershire Film series

Today Quoakle launched the first video in its Glorious Gloucestershire series! The subject matter chosen centred around the beautiful bluebells in the Forest of Dean and was filmed a few weeks ago. The Glorious Gloucestershire series is Quoakle's first venture into the "world of moving pictures" and aims to promote the county of Gloucestershire, steeped in history and full of natural beauty, with its many fabulous tourist attractions. Popular with visitors from the length and breadth of Britain, as well as visitors from abroad, Gloucestershire has so much for the locals to visit too. Quoakle aims to make some the great attractions across the county more well known.   Thanks to Ben and Joe for their hard work filming and editing "Forest of Dean Bluebells".   Forest of Dean Bluebells - Glorious Gloucestershire

Well - now you can!Mark and Jeremy have worked really hard to create a drop down box, that will develop over the next few weeks, allowing all our visitors to travel from county to county and stay with a particular topic.Try it out now! Go to and choose your topic. I've been working a lot in the garden recently, so I'd choose Gloucestershire, then Gardening to look for local Garden Centres. I'm willing to travel a bit, and live closely to Herefordshire, and now I can 'Choose another County' at the top of the page, and instantly look at the Garden Centres available in Herefordshire!We're really excited about this new development and love using it. We're sure you will... Read More
