This article is an Interview with Tim Harrison, editor of my local paper The Good Life. This is a fantastic ‘good news’ story for print. Completely ‘bucking’ the trend for all things going digital, Tim Harrison launched a local tabloid newspaper in 2012 for a small community of residents in this leafy corner of SW London. I was pleased to catch up with him in a local coffee shop to hear more about the success story.

Now, they have formed a new consultancy business called FM Future. Pete Hammond asks a few questions about the new business.
