We believe our journalism makes a difference to the community. It holds the powers that be to account, highlights stories that otherwise would have gone unseen and gives a voice to people that otherwise would have gone unheard. It enables us to learn of the struggles of others and share their successes. It matters.

However, our industry is facing testing times and there is a danger, over time, that fewer stories like this could be covered. And that is why we are asking for your support. If you believe our stories, and others like it, make a difference to our community, perhaps you would consider a contribution to help produce more journalism of this quality.

Every contribution, no matter how small, will help us to continue to produce important and powerful local journalism for the good of the community we serve.

If you are happy to and feel able to contribute please do so here 


Here are just a few stories covered in June 2021 that we feel proves why our journalism makes a positive difference.
