We often talk about London as a shared identity; an old friend or a new love, and can often be heard praising its virtues or even sharing the odd bugbear. The city's global personality is like many individuals, complex and multifaceted, but as a part of central London, St James's perhaps presents the quietly confident side of our fair capital.
Today we have so many means of talking to each other, but the role of a trusted source remains crucial to navigating this world of information that we filter, capture, and redistribute, acting as sources, editors and consumers. The Correspondent is St James's man on the ground, and having established our own strong relationships with residents, businesses and institutions, we provide an insight into the workings of this luxury quarter.
Global news is very much big business, but often the important local news, exciting events and the individual voices and stories of our immediate surroundings get lost. Our online destination website and new quarterly newspaper is a modern remedy for St James's for the true native or passing visitor alike. It features sections on community news, culture, fashion, food and developments in the built environment.
The content of the first edition of this local rag features, for example, pop-up restaurants, excerpts from eighteenth century satire, thoughts for the quarter from Rev. Lucy Winkett, and a recipe from Michelin-starred chef William Drabble. The factual and the anecdotal herein begin to reflect the distinct nature and exciting future of St James's, an area central to the London we all know and love.
The next newspaper will be available in September, with distribution at Piccadilly Circus and Green Park stations for those on the hoof. Please contact the editor with any enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
