Newspaper moves to new base at former Oxfam shop

A bi-weekly newspaper has moved to a new office at a former charity shop in the district.

The South London Press has moved from its home on Leigham Court Road in Streatham, where it has been based for decades, to a former Oxfam shop on Streatham High Road.

The Tindle-owned title is 148-years-old and last June seven hyperlocal newspapers were launched alongside it for the areas of Streatham, Brixton, Wimbledon, Wandsworth, Dulwich, Deptford & New Cross and Forest Hill & Sydenham.

This came months after five journalists at the title accepted voluntary redundancy, including the deputy editor, the news editor and chief reporter.

Ahead of its move, the paper donated bags of books accumulated at its offices, including sports annuals, local history books and novels, to St Christopher’s Hospice to sell in its charity shops.
