[ NEW: the SE1 weblog ]

Whilst compiling our 'SE1 News from Around the Web'
feature for SE1 Direct it is often frustrating that we
have to wait till Monday morning to share those
interesting links. Also, we often spot things out and
about in the area that don't quite merit a full news
story or feature on the website.

To deal with this dilemma we have joined the blogging
revolution with our very own weblog or blog:

http://www.London-SE1.co.uk/weblog/

It will develop in the weeks and months ahead, and more
members of the Bankside Press team will be contributing
