Citizen editor: More clubs could only bring more life to the city in the evening
EASTGATE Street, like a lot of Gloucester, wears its heart on it sleeve.
The strip is loud and proud about what its many clubs and late night bars have to offer and delivers the footfall as a result.
Yet, a bustling evening economy was not built on one street alone and there is the rest of the city which let's face it – bar a few exceptions – is hardly jumping.

MICHAEL Gove's announcement to scrap GCSEs has not affected one county school.
In fact, pupils at The Acorn School in Nailsworth don't sit any exams.
To some, this may appear an odd educational technique, but who are we to judge?
As they say, the proof is in the pudding and a string of its former students have just garnered first class degrees.
