That’s it from us for a few days.
It’s not that we don’t have loads more material to inflict upon our loyal reader. We just realise that you’ll not be bothering to log-on over the Yule log.
Our loyal reader, and Tony Newman and Mario Creatura, have between them viewed this website more than 1.3million times in the past 12 months – the sort of browser history that even Damian Green could not explain away.
That’s nearly double the number of page views in 2016, and that, at the time, was a year of record-busting traffic for Inside Croydon. And all those pages have been seen by nearly 500,000 unique visitors – so maybe, loyal reader, you are not alone…
Thank you for all the reads, but also for the comments, and especially the emails, articles, commentaries, tip-offs and documents that you have sent through to us which have all contributed to making this a vibrant, much-read and much-noticed website.
Being picked up by or quoted by BBC London News, the Evening Standard,Morning Star and Private Eye in the last few months demonstrates how Inside Croydon is giving voice to residents and businesses in the borough.
Please keep the emails, direct messages and Tweets (@InsideCroydon) coming.
And don’t forget, in the season of… ahem… giving, that you now have an opportunity to make a modest monthly subscription to keep Inside Croydon going.
We’ll be back after Boxing Day with more tales of life from living on the fringes of London.
Have a terrific Christmas.
Here’s wishing you all a healthy and prosperous 2018
