A press release from the Thames Innovation Centre arrived this morning, which is actually quite interesting in what it is saying. The release comments on a plan to create a new UK science park that addresses environmental concerns on the outskirts of London. The Thames Innovation Centre is the first of a number of eco buildings to be built at Veridion Park in Erith, which is an area in need of economic regeneration.

The £8.2M Thames Innovation Centre is a stylish and well equipped building, housing a range of high quality offices and work spaces as well as IT training facilities, conference rooms and even a coffee shop.

Even a coffee shop? Blimy, such luxuries are scarce to be believed and I am sure that people will be desperate to relocate to the venue now that this astonishing development has been announced.

Sorry for the sarcasm – I’m sure it’s a very nice coffee shop.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
