Newham Voices - November 2021: "Sweep fly-tippers off the streets"

Check out the latest edition of "Newham Voices - an independent news service for people who live and work in one of London’s most vibrant, diverse and exciting areas".

It is out in print and online and is a truly independent newspaper. I like that it reports the positive about Newham Council when it feels we do well yet will also report on the negative about us.  Such even handiness is exactly what Newham needs from an independent news service. 

You can pick up a free print copy in various local cafes and businesses and financially support here
