About LocalWiki Bromsgrove
Where did the idea for
LocalWiki come from?
Using the Internet to find something locally can sometimes be a
fruitless and frustrating experience.
Many local companies and organisations are listed in one or more of the
major search engines and directories however, usually the details are
no more than an address and telephone number which is not always that

There are a number of other good online directory style websites, but
often the only details listed are from companies that have paid to
advertise with them. From a visitors point of view this can also be
limiting because you are unable to get the full picture on what is
available in the area. If non advertiser companies are listed it's
usually back to the basic details again.

information as possible available to the visitor, coming as close as
possible to the experience of asking a friend to recommend a good
repair garage or restaurant for example.
It's not just businesses that can be listed, literally anything that
relates to Bromsgrove and surrounding areas can be submitted. Our aim
is to create a truly local knowledge base that everyone can benefit
