How Many People Use ChiswickW4.com

We are not funded by local government nor are we part of a larger media organisation. The site was set up by a locally based company.

There is no editorial line as we aim to reflect the broad spectrum of views in the community. We aren't political but are quite happy to publish your views if you are - just as we will publish the views of someone who disagrees with you.

ChiswickW4.com is edited by Anne Flaherty an experienced journalist who has lived in the area for over 17 years. She is supported by a large number of other contributors who regularly provide items on a wide range of subjects.

Our aim is to be as comprehensive as possible - if your organisation isn't listed here, it is because you haven't asked us.

< WHAT IS IT?

The site is free for you to use and we have no intention of charging for access. The site is funded by advertising - we try to ensure that this doesn't limit your enjoyment of the site. You can help keep the site free and the amount of advertising restricted by always telling our sponsors that you saw their ad with us. Nearly all of our advertisers are smaller independent local businesses.

To get the most out of it you should register as a member. This is free and registration allows you full access to all areas of the site as well as use of the applications such as the directory, the forum and classifieds. A weekly newsletter keeps you in touch with events in Chiswick.
