Just the unvarnished news, brought to you by a small team of dedicated citizen reporters and photographers and written and edited by Steven Downes, a multi-award-winning journalist with a lifetime’s experience of working in print, on television and online.
But like everything, it comes at a cost.
In the past couple of years Inside Croydon has experimented with different modes of paid advertising, and has used crowdfunding to pay for a successful legal defence when those made uncomfortable by the truth tried to sue the website.
And we like to think that our ever-growing readership – generating 10,000 unique page views per day in June 2020 – might agree to contribute with a modest monthly subscription towards the running costs of Inside Croydon.
We use Patreon, a secure payments platform based in the United States (hence the payments are expressed in US dollars).
For less than the cost of a pint (of beer, rather than milk) each month, you can be part of the growing team of contributors, helping to keep news-breaking, independent journalism alive and thriving and based in Croydon.
