WandsworthSW18.com is a digital newspaper formerly known as WandsworthTown.com. It was relaunched in May 2010 under a new editor, Louise Salmon.
Louise works with a number of other writers in the area aiming to provide the leading source of local online news for Wandsworth.
We also receive content as a partner in the BBC's Local Democracy Reporters Scheme. Any stories sourced from this scheme will be clearly indicated.
WandsworthSW18.com is part of a network of local web sites which covers a large part of West and South West London. The company behind this network is Neighbour Net Ltd. It was formed in 1999 and believed to be the biggest provider of dedicated hyperlocal news online in the U.K. Neighbour Net Ltd is registered in England and Wales under the 1985 Companies Act and the company Number 3859665. The company is privately funded by its directors only. It has no political or religious affiliations.
Group wide there are over 49,000 registered members and the sites get collectively around 130,000 unique user sessions a month.
To fully participate you really should register as a member - it's free and you can the use all of the features on the site. The site already has over 1000 members.
We send out a weekly newsletter which tells you what is new on the site and about events in Wandsworth.
On this site, you are able to instantly express your own views in the Forum, enter your own classified adverts directly online and give feedback on local services.
We aim to adhere to the Editors’ Code of Practice and if we have demonstrably failed to do so in anything that we publish we undertake to resolve the situation promptly. Any significant inaccuracy, misleading statement or distortion will be corrected quickly and with due prominence. If appropriate an apology will be published. We use the Editors’ Code of Practice but we are not members of the Independent Press Standards Organisation.
If you are unhappy about an article that has been published on the site in the first instance contact the editor with your concerns. Include your full name, address and phone number in any correspondence.
Our target is that all editors should respond to a complaint within a week of it being sent. If no reply has been received or you are not satisfied with the response then your complaint will be considered by the directors of Neighbour Net Ltd. Forward details to email@example.com. We aim to respond to all complaints at this stage within ten days although this may take longer if it is necessary to obtain legal advice.
If you remain unsatisfied at this stage we will endeavour to arrange low-cost, mutually agreeable and binding arbitration though an independent third party. The initial cost of this would be payable by the complainant but this would be refundable in whole or part if the arbitrator finds that Neighbour Net have not responded to the complaint adequately.
Note: this procedure does not cover complaints about feedback on the directory or posts made on the forum. They should be addressed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.

There are many more being planned and they are always looking for suitable people as partners
