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

  1. Thanks, as ever.

    I’m confused about the posts about “c2c trains into Canning Town”. C2C trains go to West Ham, Canning Town is DLR/Jubilee and hasn’t had a mainline train since 2006.

    Is this about the total lack of stairs from the National Rail platforms at West Ham?

    Looks like they are starting apartment building around there?
