I am convinced that the Internet is a great tool to spread local democracy and free views. By publishing and commenting all local information we may find related to Clapham Junction, that’s what we are trying to encourage here.
I am used to follow a few sites to be informed on activities of Wandsworth Council, and Wandsworth borough and a few weeks ago I discovered that a few more Councillors have decided to publish their views on blogs (and it makes a very interesting reading). Below is a list of what I gathered (feel free to add other interesting sites in comments).
- Cllr James Cousins – Shaftesbury Ward (oldest blog I know, since Nov 2008!)

Clapham Junction Insider (formerly called CJAG website) has been publishing local news for more than 14 years and remains committed to providing local community information and public interest journalism.
We aim to feature as much as possible on community campaigns and initiatives, local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents and helping residents.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
Until recently, all stories, analysis and reports published have been made with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it cost time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but we need financial resources to help us providing regular information.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
2 ways of supporting our project

- 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.
- 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.

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.
