This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but 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 its 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 your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    I see you include our Boston Manor listed building (before the roof guardrails were taken down and featuring on a postage stamp a while ago)where they seem to be able to install lifts as opposed to the bigger and much busier Northfields where they are aparantly unable despite loads more space – amazing!
