Hackney Citizen Christmas

The Hackney Citizen team wishes all our readers, Twitter followers, Facebook fans, supporters and Friday Digest subscribers a very merry Christmas!

We’ll be returning on 31 December. In the meantime, enjoy some festive content from our archive, and please consider supporting some of the charities and projects that feature:

The coronavirus outbreak sadly means the Hackney Citizen is unable to print a monthly newspaper for the first time in its 12-year history.

At a time when independent and trusted news is more important than ever, this was an incredibly difficult decision to have to make.

Without print advertising, our major source of income, a one-off donation from anyone who can afford it will help our small team keep the website and social media feeds running through this unprecedented crisis.

When Hackney and the wider world has fought off this virus and we return to some semblance of normality, the print edition will be back.

Thanks in advance for your support, and stay safe.
