Support Local Journalism

Dear Hingham,

Welcome aboard the Anchor’s First-Mates Club!  Since 2018, the Hingham Anchor has served as a hyperlocal news and lifestyle website to document and celebrate the amazing people that live and work in Hingham, MA.   Especially given the onset of the global pandemic impacting every facet of daily local life, we are proud to have provided this important community resource at no charge to our users. This, coupled with the crisis of shrinking of newsrooms nationwide has made it more dire than ever for hyperlocal community news and we are so grateful to have the platform to deliver for local residents.

We believe strongly that news should not be hidden behind a paywall and we are very grateful to our advertising partners that support local journalism and enable us to run this free community resource – please notice these advertisers and support them.  The Anchor would also not be possible without community support.

As we aim to continue to grow and improve our local coverage and content, we are seeking community support. If you love the Anchor and want to support us we would love to welcome you to our First Mates Club.


The First Mate’s Club is designed to enable readers to support the Anchor at whatever level you feel comfortable.  We are grateful for your support.  Thank you for keeping us sailing –together, let’s continue to make good, local news.
