The Stray Ferret

The Stray Ferret is an independent online news service for the Harrogate district. We are a platform for people in the District to ask questions, share their views and voice opinions on issues of public importance.

Our journalists will seek greater transparency about how public money is spent and to hold those in power to account. 

The team of journalists in the Stray Ferret newsroom are trained and experienced. We have core journalistic principles of accuracy, fairness, independence and impartiality.

The Stray Ferret Ltd is a joint venture between Chris Bentley of Hornbeam Park Developments Ltd and Tamsin O’Brien, the Editor.  Mr Bentley does not have an editorial role.
