Thanks for stopping by. We welcome your comments.
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are intersted in real local news than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

So we would appreciate Support in donations, which will be reinvested to get more quality journalism to you.
