London Voice, the community newspaper launched in August last year, is expanding to include a Bexley and Greenwich edition.
Professor Harbhajan Singh, a former Bexley councillor, is the newspaper’s managing editor.
He launched London Voice, which he says is the first independent non-profit-making newspaper representing the capital, as a mainstream publication aiming to develop understanding and friendship between people from all nationalities and backgrounds.
“It’s a dream come true that we are able to start editionalising the paper less than a year after launching London Voice,” he said.
“We are thrilled with the response we have had from readers and advertisers, who have been asking for a local edition for some time.”
He also said London Voice had benefited from the support of “many talented and experienced multi-ethnic and multicultural editorial staff”.
Singh added: “From my childhood, it was my vision that people from all diverse ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds should be able to work together to foster understanding to make this world a happier and safer place.
“Through London Voice and our new local edition, I believe we are beginning to achieve these cherished goals.”
