Thank you Croydon! Website breaks records with 3m views

Editor, Inside Croydon

Thank you, Croydon.

At some point over the weekend, this website eased past the total number of page views we received in 2020, as we set another record in our daily coverage of all things Croydon.

We now expect to exceed 3million page views by the end of 2021, an extraordinary milestone in the history of this website, which was launched in June 2010.

And we have only managed to do that because of you, our loyal reader, and our merry band of subscribers, who have reached into their (virtual) pockets to help support our independent, agenda-setting journalism.

So thank you! Here’s to the next 3million pages viewed.

    Why is there no info on the new Southbank University faculty opened in Croydon in September, or have I missed it? Goodness knows we need some positive news for Croydon!
