History of Fitzrovia News
A community newspaper called The Tower was started in 1973 by a small group of activists as a free community newspaper but ceased publication at the end of 1979. In 1980 the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood News was born, supported by the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association. It was later shortened to Fitzrovia News and has been published more or less four times a year ever since. From 2009 Fitzrovia News has been published online. As of June 2010 Fitzrovia News has featured in Google News and from October 2014 in Bing News. There is an article on Fitzrovia News at Wikipedia.
We have an archive of all The Tower and Fitzrovia News.
