Stephen Downes, who produces 'Inside Croydon', was the speaker on 4 September 2018.
Stephen set up 'Inside Croydon' eight years ago
and it has 4,000 readers each day. It is an independent news sheet and covers
local events as well as investigative journalism.
Inside Croydon is able to scrutinise public
affairs and people can air issues. It does not receive any subsidy from the
local Council or the BBC, as the Croydon Advertiser and Croydon Guardian do,
and hence it retains its independence.
