Croydon Advertiser's Gareth Davies wins award
29/05/2012 15:09:00

 
 

Congratulations to Croydon Advertiser reporter Gareth Davies, who recently won the Reporter of the Year prize at the Regional Press Awards.

The award was in recognition of his coverage of last summer’s riots (he was assaulted as he sought to report what was happening) and his work on The Advertiser's campaign for Lillian’s Law, a package of measures to tackle drug-driving named after my constituent Lillian Groves who was tragically killed outside her home by a drug-driver.

Gareth is an outstanding young reporter but he is not alone - both our local newspapers have passionate journalists who are committed to providing impartial reporting of what is happening in our town. These are difficult times for local newspapers - this award serves as a reminder of the important role they play in our democracy.
