Happy birthday to us!
They grow up so fast, don't they?
This is a paywalled edition of Local Authority - an independent Medway newsletter covering local news, politics, culture, and the weirder side of our towns. If you’ve arrived here by an external link, this article is for paid supporters. You can get a free trial below if you’d like to read this article, or you can hit the subscribe button below to get the weekly free edition of the newsletter every Friday. Thanks for reading!
I usually send out an extra edition of Local Authority to paid supporters on Wednesdays, but this newsletter launched one year ago tomorrow, so I’m sending this little state of the newsletter to everyone who reads this thing.
I hope you’ll forgive the little self-indulgence of this edition. I know some readers like to understand how the newsletter works behind the scenes, and others don’t care at all. If you’re in the later camp, this might not be the edition for you, and we’ll be back with the usual Medway news and commentary on Friday.
But as we celebrate our first birthday, this issue will be a bit of a look back at where this newsletter came from, where we are now, and where we’re heading as we enter our second year.
