Happy New Year to the Mill team. It’s been gratifying to see The Mill grow and thrive. The stories you selected were all excellent examples of why The Mill needs to exist because who would have ran those stories without you?

You know you are changing things when other “local” news outlets start copying you, albeit poorly. Every time I go on Twitter and see another post about “local clubs that celebrities used to hang out in”, I’m very grateful that The Mill is around.

Happy New Year Millers. Some of my favourite stories are amongst the staff choices here.

May 2023 bring more paying subscribers to enable The Mill to do everything it would like to.

Joshi, an Nou Fericit

I always look forward to a Mill post in my in-box.

Great mix of human feature stories and investigative journalism. You and the team have a vital role in holding our politicians accountable particularly in the one party state that is (Greater) Manchester.

Aluta Continua......

Happy New Year, Joshi & team. It's been wonderful to see this movement - that's what it is - grow. I love the range of reactions your stories elicit from me, in comparison to the monotone feelings of despair and incandescent rage that are my response to 'regular' news. Good luck for those 10,000 payers in '23 :)

Thank you Joshi and the team for a year of local journalism that truly stands out for me as a revolution in news reporting. I hope that your model defines the way forward for reporting not only in the UK but globally. Never a bad idea to have ambition, eh? I remember ALL of the stories in your post whereas I remember next to none from another news organisation that I pay for. Speaks volumes, well done

To summarise from this posting, what an eclectic mixture of stories reported from this city! The common thread is a human perspective that is often missing from the mainstream media. Best wishes for 2023 in the continuation of your team 's voyage of exploration of the soul and psyche of Manchester and its environs.

Joshi you, of course, follow in a very fine Mancunian newspaper tradition. https://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/448/archives_and_local_history/7376/historical_newspapers

The Mill is, I think, unique in covering local matters in a reflective way and with longer form journalism.

Well done and enjoy the break - you deserve it!

Well Joshi, what a wonderful post. How brave you and you family are.

When I first read the mill I was very impressed with its journalistic style and wondered will this survive.

Thankfully yes it has and I enjoy reading most of the the articles sent out.

I wish you and your Colleagues every success so happy new year and I hope 2023 is a great one for “The Mill”
