With our recent relaunch we have put a focus on longer reads and analysis on issues that matter to communities in north London.
We partnered with the Hampstead Neighbourhood Forum to launch a survey looking at what the future holds for Hampstead’s village centres. In Highgate the High Street is in many ways as healthy as ever, but great uncertainty remains.
We want to promote ‘opinion journalism’, not just giving voice to a variety of perspectives, but also raising important questions. Central to the Ham&High’s circulation area is Hampstead Heath, which is managed by the City of London Corporation, whose members are elected several miles away. There has been controversy in recent years around the funding of its upkeep, and in our second edition we asked whether the City is the right steward for this precious greenspace.
Speaking of our environment, it has been notable in the last year how protective people have become about trees in their neighbourhoods. With #loveourtrees we’ll be featuring “Landmark Trees of the Ham&High” and investigating the green credentials of our local authorities.
Beyond the news and the debate, we want to be a positive force.
On Friday May 21 we are hosting Ham&High: Our Community’s Mental Health, a day of panels, interviews and discussions around wellbeing, as society undergoes its Covid recovery.
