The Mercury is a family friendly newspaper with an emphasis on human interest stories.

We are all about people and every week the newspaper pages are full of local faces and great stories. We are always keen to tell our readers about the triumphs and achievements of our residents, businesspeople, community groups, schools and traders shouting about their successes.

Every week our reporter is scrutinising the area and making sure the stories that matter to our readers are in the news. The Mercury covers the Royal Borough of Greenwich as well as neighbouring Lewisham.

There are vast changes happening in the area including the development of the Greenwich Peninsula, Crossrail and Convoys Wharf in Deptford which are set to transform this part of South East London further. However, we are also keen on covering our fantastically historic Greenwich town centre and all the activities happening there highlighting the entertainment on our doorstep making sure we do justice to all the wonderful events going on.

It is a world heritage site and we are proud to call it our home.
