{ Editor's note }

Dear all,

A month ago we launched a membership scheme with the aim of
building a base of support to keep the SE1 website (and this
weekly email) going into 2017 and beyond.

First of all: THANK YOU. We are quietly encouraged by the
initial response. But there's still a lot to do if we're
going to be able to continue for the long haul.

If you've thought about joining but not got round to it yet,
please do sign up at http://www.London-SE1.co.uk/membership/

As well as Paypal we've added a Direct Debit payment option.

Some of you have asked for a way to make a one-off
contribution, rather than a recurring subscription. In
response, we've now added a way for you to sponsor an hour
of local journalism:

With massive thanks to everyone who has been in touch to
offer encouragement and good wishes,

James
Editor, SE1 website
