In April 2018 The Local France followed in the footsteps of our sister sites in Sweden and Germany and launched a Membership scheme.
We had reached a point where the dominance of Google and Facebook meant advertising could no longer provide the resources to keep the site running and growing so we asked readers to support us financially by becoming Members.
It was a positive change because it meant we concentrate less on clicks and more on essential content for readers.
Being a Member gave readers unlimited access to the website and also enabled them to read certain in-depth articles reserved just for Members.
So far nearly 3,000 have signed up to support The Local France. We are grateful for their backing. You can join now for just €6 for the first three months.
I think many things are still up in the air, but my understanding is the French government is trying to ensure we are protected even if no deal, at least in the short term, until agreements are reach post Brexit. This is a useful article. https://t.co/EqzzdOuB8k
