This is now the third calendar year for this website which started in November 2008. After the end of our first battle against the twin skyscrapers proposed for Clapham Junction Station in 2009, we have addressed another series of issues in 2010 and worked with some success with other groups in Wandsworth borough such as the amenities Societies and the new Wandsworth Living Street group, and attended meetings such as the Planning Forums and the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership.
I could do a recap of the event of 2010… but the easiest way is to point out the 16 categories on the right hand side of this page where you can browse the different categories and find the latest news. In addition we will summarize the latest news in our January NewsLetter (if you wish to receive it, send us a message HERE).
Instead I am going to give you a few stats on this website:

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly known as the CJAG website) has been publishing local news for over 14 years and remains committed to providing information about the local community and engaging in public interest journalism.

Our goal is to feature a wide range of community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, and provide assistance to residents.

We have always been dedicated to these endeavours and have no intention of changing. In fact, we would like to expand our efforts further.

Until recently, all the stories, analyses, and reports published have been made possible with the invaluable help of many volunteers. However, it requires a significant amount of time and effort, and we are frustrated that we cannot do more. There are numerous topics we would like to cover, but we require financial resources to provide regular information.

Therefore, we kindly ask our readers to consider offering financial support to sustain these efforts. Any contributions made will help support community and public interest news, as well as the expansion of our coverage in this area.

2 ways of supporting our project

Do you think what we are doing is helping the community and you want to encourage us to do more? We have set up two ways of supporting our project:

  1. Paypal: For one-off contributions, you can just use your bank card. However if you wish to encourage and support us regularly with a small amount, you will need a Paypal account to set up a monthly subscription. Click here to donate.
  2. Patreon: this is a well-known membership platform that connects content creators with supporters. Mainly, it offers financial tools that let supporters subscribe to projects that give creators a predictable income stream as they continue to create content. Click here to subscribe and support us regularly.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
