The aim of this section will be to highlight issues affecting my home town Berkhamsted. It will be a mixture of citizen journalism and a resource for people looking for local campaigning organisations.
The decline of an active local press means that a lot of events go unscrutinised. This gives more power to those in authority to take decisions affecting people’s lives without being challenged.
This is not healthy for a local community or democracy so expect issues to be raised here that might not get coverage elsewhere or are now ignored by official media.
Eventually if I can grapple with all the possibities of new technology I would like this pcategoty to become more of an inter active forum for local debate.
In the meantime watch this space.
