Dear reader.

Now more than ever, local journalism matters.

In addition to holding public services to account and bringing you the latest news from our high streets, our courts, our sports teams and businesses; our staff are now working round the clock to provide you with the latest, fact-checked information on our region’s fight against coronavirus.

And now more than ever, we need your help to build a sustainable future for trusted local news.

Our reporting costs money, and so does providing our communities with free news in our newspapers and on our websites. Although we do make a small charge for the E-Edition, this is a nominal fee and we hope you agree that it is good value for money.

You may already be award about the tough times facing local newspapers across the world and the situation has hardly been improved by recent events.

So to help us keep doing what we do and help keep you informed, we are inviting readers of our websites to give their financial support to our work.

You’ll be invited to do so next time you visit us. You can contribute any amount you like, as a one-off or a recurring contribution.

We here at The Hunts Post are so proud of our community and proud of the journalism that supports the people, the businesses and the organisations. We want to continue to fight for the individual, to help raise vital funds for charities and to publish the weddings reports, the obits, the WI news, the jumble sales and the readers’ letters.

We strongly believe that accurate, useful, honest, local journalism is vital and we really hope you believe that too.

That’s why we hope you will help us. Every single gesture of support will keep us fighting for you and the people of Huntingdonshire.

Thank you

Debbie Davies, Editor
