Centre Page spread covered the Stirling's residents opportunity to cast their vote for our very own Monopoly Board. <Full Story>

“The factors that will decide are two-fold. Firstly – and crucially – the strength of popular feeling and pride for a particular city or town. Secondly, the diversity and beauty of potential landmarks to fill the board. So it’s in effect a beauty contest – to borrow a famous MONOPOLY phrase. The only difference is there is no prize for coming second, just first.”
