About this site

The Charlton Champion is a hyperlocal blog for Charlton, south-east London. It was founded in October 2010 as a response to the almost non-existent local media coverage of events in Charlton, and to highlight events in an area that’s frequently overlooked in favour of its larger neighbours.

We’re here to celebrate what’s great about SE7, as well as discussing what’s not so great – and hopefully this will be a forum to do some good for the area.

If you’ve news, or strong views about anything in Charlton (if it’s SE7, it’s in) or its immediate surrounds – whether it be a review, praise, a gripe, or a piece of local history – please feel free to comment or contribute.

It’s worth remembering this site is done in people’s spare time, so we don’t always have the time to go chasing up stories – we’re far more interested in what you can tell us…
