I recently searched the WordPress tags for the village of Stoke Mandeville, a nice village situated about 3 miles to the South East of Aylesbury and I was sorry to come across only one post, a negative reference relating to the hospital and the late radio and television presenter and part-time hospital porter and fund-raiser.
Which is a shame, since Stoke Mandeville has a lot going for it. A thriving Parish Council, a world-famous hospital with it’s equally famous National Spinal Injuries Centre and a long history which includes the founding of the Paralympics, a beautiful church, several pubs, a well-maintained railway station, beautiful walks and breath-taking views.
In fact, such is the importance of Stoke Mandeville to the IOC that it recently announced that Stoke Mandeville would take part in every future Paralympics Games Torch Lighting Relay.
So let’s see if we can’t raise the profile of Stoke Mandeville a little on WordPress. Feel free to link your own SM blog below or post links to your pictures and articles.
