About the Newham Recorder

The Newham Recorder was formed in 1968, three years after the county boroughs of East Ham and West Ham were brought together to form the London Borough of Newham.  

Quickly establishing itself as the main newspaper in the community it has acquired an unrivalled reputation for campaigning on behalf of its readers.

And through our newspaper, website and social media channels we offer unrivalled independent coverage of the borough.

Newham is unique in London in terms of its people, history and opportunities. It benefits from being a diverse, multi-cultural environment.

As Newham redefines itself as a viable and attractive business for hundreds of local companies it has also attracted the world’s attention as home to London 2012 and most notably the Olympic Stadium and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The Recorder has changed – reflecting the changes in the community – over the last decade. With the growth of London City Airport, the ExCeL exhibition centre and the gradual creation of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, Newham is booming.

But at the same time there is still social deprivation which causes the council, schools, people and the Newham Recorder great challenges.

One of the most successful campaigns – run for more than 30 years, has been our Christmas Toy Appeal for needy children, which we run in conjunction with care group Community Links, collecting thousands of toys for needy children.

The Newham Recorder will continue to be pivotal to the local community and seek to represent the multi-cultural borough
