Erica Roffe is co-founder and Managing Editor of the Bedford Independent, a dynamic, informed and informative local news website.
The demise of print media and buying-up of local titles by syndicates has resulted in a collapse of local news services in Bedford. Coupled with the decline of its distinctive High Street the town is in danger of losing sight of its essential character.
For many years Erica's dynamic energy brought pop-up events to Bedford High Street utilising slack space. In 2018 she co-founded the Bedford Independent; like the town it represents it is democratic, independent and inclusive. It's like a digital village square.
