Introducing the Bedford Independent letters page

Letters to the editor

Eight months ago we launched the Bedford Independent on social media, with the promise that we would continue to grow and deliver exactly what the people of Bedford deserve from a high-quality, genuinely editorial based, news desk.

Our website then launched at the end of November and has hit the ground running with 60,000 unique readers each month reading 130,000 unique pages between them.*

Over the coming weeks we’ll be announcing more features that will further enhance our commitment to you as a 21st century news desk for a 21st century Bedford.

Today we launch our letters page, giving you the chance to tell fellow Bedfordians what’s on your mind.

Maybe it’s something that’s bothering you, something you want to praise, or maybe you’ve got something to say about one of our recent articles. Whatever it is, our letters page is your platform to do just that.

We can’t wait to hear from you.

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.
