EC1 Echo is Clerkenwell’s free community newspaper. Launched in 2019 in partnership with The Peel Institute, we are a not-for-profit publication that exists to hold authority to account and offer a platform enabling local people to highlight what matters to them.

From October 2023, EC1 Echo is no longer being printed. We hope to be able to relaunch the paper with the support of local people. We are a not for profit organisation and if you would like to help support us please find out more about our membership scheme or consider purchasing an advertisement for your organisation.

You are also welcome to write for us about projects you are involved with, campaigns you are running, or events you are organising.

EC1 Echo is published by Social Spider Community News in partnership with The Peel Institute. Social Spider also publish north-east London newspapers Haringey Community PressWaltham Forest Echo and Enfield Dispatch plus community news website Barnet Post.
