We know you love HIP as much as we do which is why we’ve just launched a crowdfunder to keep this fantastic newspaper truly independent and thriving.

Your local community news source, run by a bunch of extremely dedicated volunteers working on a daily basis, provides up-to-date coverage of issues and events that really matter to our readership, giving voice to views and ideas often not represented in mainstream media.

All the details on how to donate and great rewards available are on the HIP Indiegogo page! HIP HIP HOORAY!

We hope you have enjoyed reading this article. The future of our volunteer led, non-profit publication would be far more secure with the aid of a small donation. You can also support local journalism by becoming a friend of HIP. It only takes a minute and we would be very grateful.
