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

    My wife and I went on a tour of St Ermins Hotel in Caxton Street where we had our wedding reception fifty years ago. The hotel has amazing history dating back to the SOE and subsequent formation of MI5. The Cambridge five used to meet there and there were secret tunnels to Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament. Well worth a visit!
