  • Unite rather than divide a community
  • Support a more local, human scale of living
  • Celebrate the culture and heritage of our diverse communities
  • Provide jobs and opportunities to local young people
  • Enable members to publish their own content

How your membership helps

We asked our readers, how does local journalism support the local economy?

“I often forward articles to friends, like the one about Mark the fruit vendor to tell my sister-in-law where to shop.”

“It encourages people to visit places that might not have that much advertisement power.”

“It’s great to hear the back story of a place. For instance, I’ve been meaning to go to some of the cafes or restaurants and your mag is a reminder of this.”

“It encourages people to visit the area and establishes a place as a destination that is worthy of visiting.”

“Increases knowledge and therefore an interest in exploring new experiences which is inspiring and uplifting.”
