We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.

Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
