Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the Ham&High is there with you

At the Ham&high we want to tell you we’re there with you and we want to support the great work being done in the community.
I think it’s safe to say that as we looked forward into this new year, none of us expected to be where we are today.
You don’t need me to tell you that things are weird. You also don’t need me to tell you about the amazing work that NHS staff are doing in the most difficult of circumstances – although we’ll tell you that at every possible opportunity anyway.
What has been striking is the level of community spirit being shown across the country.
We have a difficult time ahead in many ways. It is going to be painful, and sometimes lonely, but we at the Ham&High want to say that, along with the local community, we are there with you.
Our team of journalists are scattered across the breadth of north London, working from front rooms, bedrooms and kitchens and we’ll be there until we are through this.
We are here to give you the vital information you need about where we live, but also to shine a light on the great work so many people are doing.

Our newspaper and our website want to give a platform to groups in the community.
We can’t cover everything, but we will do our best to serve our community. So let us know about the great things happening near you.
As well as reporting the news, we have launched a directory on the website with contact details for the groups and organisations, old and new, that we need so much right now. Search “There With You: Essential list” on our website, and to get your group added, email reporter email@example.com and we will update the directory.
I wish everyone well. Take care of yourselves.
