NN Journal’s member scheme is OPEN

Good morning

We announced earlier this week we would be introducing paid subscriptions from Monday. Your subscription will go a long way to help us to become sustainable and keep delivering independent, ad-free news to your inbox. Please go ahead and become one of our first members by using the button below.

Members will get NN Journal’s full coverage, receiving posts from us every weekday, including two or three members-only posts per week. You will also join our community, be able to take part in our discussion threads, access the full archive and receive first invites to the open newsrooms which start next month.

The cost is £5 a month, with a reduced price for those who sign up for the year. There is also the option to provide a bit more support by becoming a founder member.

Please remember that if you do not wish to pay, or think you have not seen enough of our journalism yet to commit to pay, PLEASE stay signed up. You will receive at least two emails a week with original news about Northamptonshire.

(We use the secure Stripe to process the payments. More details on the security here

Since we launched in January we have had some great feedback and are glad we have been able to bring to public attention some underexposed issues.

We have also been able to start on our aim to help build back Northamptonshire’s local journalism community by working with a group of young people in Northampton to teach them reporting skills.

In the months ahead we will be looking at a range of issues from housing to climate change and Northamptonshire’s mental health services. There is also of course the upcoming local elections in May - for which we plan to bring you in-depth coverage in the weeks leading up the elections and on the night itself.

We’ll leave you with these kind words from Marc Webber, senior lecturer in journalism and media at the University of Northampton

“Northamptonshire is full of news. Every day a new story.

“It’s important to have a platform where those issues are investigated in depth. So, it’s great to have NN Journal covering those stories and shining a light on what’s really going on in the county from multiple perspectives.

“As someone teaching the next generation of Northamptonshire’s journalists, it’s imperative they have NN Journal to look up to.”
