Merry Christmas from the Hackney Citizen!

The Hackney Citizen team wishes all of our readers, Twitter followers, supporters and subscribers a very merry Christmas.

We’ll be returning next week, and keep an eye out for our January print edition, which will be winging its way across the borough from next Friday.

In the meantime, please consider supporting local charities such as Hackney Foodbank, Hackney Night Shelter, or some of the many others that look out for residents in increasingly trying circumstances.
