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 by Cyril Richert with the great help of many volunteers. However, at the end of the day it costs time and efforts and we are frustrated that we cannot and do more: there are many subjects that we would like to cover but funding journalism is tough. We need financial support to help us expand and cover more stories as well as providing regular information.
Your help means we can spend more time researching stories, talking to contacts, sitting through meetings and writing stories. 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
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:
- 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.
- 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.
Most of this money goes to Habilis-Digital Ltd, the digital agency that runs this site, to pay running costs and invest in future projects. Habilis-Digital Ltd is a company owned by Cyril Richert, editor of this site.
