THIS month, your Camden New Journal celebrates its 40th birthday – so please pop a million quid in a card and send it through to the offices to safeguard the future of campaigning – and truly local – independent journalism forever.

If you do not have a million pounds, don’t worry – you can still help us celebrate our milestone.

In a special edition later this month, we will be telling the story of the paper’s four decades – growing from an industrial dispute which threatened to leave Camden without its local newspaper.

And as part of that coverage we want anybody who we have written about or whose lives have been changed by our coverage to get in touch to be featured in our look back.

After the pandemic, local news is at a crossroads. In many parts of our industry, there is a rush to swap on-the-ground and time-consuming reporting with quick online blasts that can be posted for easy wins on social media and in Facebook groups.

We believe that real journalism can’t be done just by staring at Twitter and cutting corners. Instead we still strive to match our founders’ aims: to make sure Camden has its campaigning voice, open to all.
