Here at the Cranfield and Marston Vale Chronicle we believe that local newspapers should put the concerns of the local community at the heart of their publication.
As a regulated independent newspaper and website, we report the facts without bias. This community relevant news would be harder to find if we were not here.
But we need your help to fund the Cranfield and Marston Vale Chronicle's quality journalism that serves our community.
Like many news organisations in the UK, our future is threatened as our advertising revenues have plummeted. Local news providers across the UK have not benefitted from the millions of pounds in government COVID-19 advertising.
Instead, this money went to the larger news companies, companies that have decided to close their local offices and replace local news with syndicated regional stories.
We work hard every day to bring you news and announcements from across Marston Vale - our home.
One option is to have a paywall, but we want everyone in Marston Vale to be able to read the stories we publish for free.
We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
Even a small donation makes a difference for our future. Thank you for your support.
