About Medway Today

“no clickbait, no Fergus Wilson, just local news for Medway”

Fed up with the poor quality of online local news for Kent, added to the tonnes of clickbait and galleries of “compo faces”, we set about creating something better.

We aim for Medway Today to provide quality local news for Gillingham, Chatham, Rochester, Strood, Rainham and the surrounding villages.

We will provide this news to you, for free, in line with IPSO guidance. We support the FAIR principle of anonymity before charge. Our service is paid for by advertising and by generous donations by our readers. We do not pay for stories. We are not for profit.

Medway Today is run and edited by Ralph Allison.
