Here’s your chance to help the Bedford Independent get even better


It’s always good to hear from our readers how much they love the Bedford Independent, it’s even better to hear how they think we can improve.

The Bedford Independent is proud to provide impartial, fact-checked and comprehensive reporting of the things that matter to our readers.

To help continue doing just that, we’re currently running a survey to see what you think of Bedford’s most widely-read publication and what you’d like to see from us in the future.

You may have seen the news how we’ve recently been awarded two grants to continue our work.

As a small (and new), independent business, which faces the same struggles as any business, particularly in these unprecedented times, these grants couldn’t have come at a better time.

But all the grants in the world won’t matter if we’re not delivering what the people of Bedford need.

So, please do take a few moments to join the others who have already taken a few minutes to respond and help us to improve our work and continue to be the news desk you’ve come to trust.

Now more than ever, we need your help to fund the Bedford Independent’s quality journalism that serves our community...

We choose to champion editorial independence, meaning we report the facts without bias and can stand up to those in power when we believe it’s needed.

We can give a voice to people in our community whose voices may otherwise not be heard. And we don’t have a paywall, so everyone can read the stories we publish for free.

But in this time of crisis, many news organisations all over the world are facing existential threat, with advertising revenues plummeting. We’re no different.

We work hard every day to bring you news, commentary, entertainment and announcements from across Bedford. We hope that, with your help, we’ll be able to continue this for many years to come.
