We attended the Peckham Peculiar launch party for the newest hyperlocal periodical for Peckham. We were glad to have helped Kickstart the newspaper in a small way, along with our co-business, Captured on the Rye. The first issue has a peep inside Peckham’s famous hair salons of Rye Lane, a piece about the legendary Peckham Liberal Club, thoughts on the redevelopment of Peckham Rye station and a recipe for sticky, spicy chicken that I absolutely must try out! You can read the edition online.
Captured on the Rye and the SE22 Piano School are supporting The Peckham Peculiar on Kickstarter – will you show your support too so they can reach their funding goal of £5000? As of tonight, they are just £387 away from their goal and there’s just a fortnight left to raise the final amount.
‘The Peckham Peculiar’ is a new periodical in one of London’s most vibrant areas.
You should get involved if:
(a) you love newspapers
(b) you want to inspire the local community
(c) you want to be associated with a project that’s hyper-local in one of London’s most up-and-coming and talked about areas!
From TPP’s Kickstarter page: “We want to write about local news. We want to be free so the whole community can read us. We will be a 16 page newspaper that comes out 6 times a year. The emphasis will be on real reporting and unique stories, not celebrity-led drivel. There will also be a strong focus on design and lots of photographs.”
