If you want to learn more about the history and culture of our area of London, free guided walks offer the perfect opportunity.

These hour long monthly walks, organised by Hammersmith BID, are free to all Privilege card holders. If you don’t yet have a card, you can instantly download it, and take advantage of a wide range of deals and special offers from local businesses.

On Saturday 6 April the walk focuses on West Kensington rockers. Enjoy some rock and roll nostalgia and find out where Andy Summers of The Police once lived, Hendrix’s first port of call in the UK and where a naughty Rolling Stone ended up in court. Meet outside West Kensington tube station, 11am.

The guided walk on Saturday 4 May is within Margravine Cemetery in Barons Court. What links a gold prospector, victims of a local wartime disaster, and the man who cast the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus? They all lie in the Margravine cemetery, opened in 1868, and now an award-winning green oasis. Enjoy the trees, the wildlife, and stories of some of those buried here. Meet outside Barons Court tube station, 11am.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
