A graph created with websites as a graph under CC2 by Jorg Kanngießer As part of our continuing mission to improve the site we're launching a new reader survey to find out what you like and how we can do better. It’s our first major survey since 2015 and we’d love your input, so please click here to tell us what you think.

Please help us keep publishing - for less than the cost of a 'posh' coffee a month... 

WE'RE READER POWERED! Our local news is currently free to view, but not to produce. Join people just like you who already chip in to keep our site going by becoming a 'Good Friend' supporter for just £2.50 a month (less than the price of most 'posh' coffees) - or more if you can.

You don't need a PayPal account - just use the "Pay with Debit or Credit Card' option, when you click the 'Subscribe' button below, on the next screen. There's no obligation to open a PayPal account. Or use your existing PayPal account if you prefer. Or even better, contact us to set up a standing order so we get all your sub rather than PayPal taking a percentage.
