About Robert

Hello my friend. I’m a web developer by trade, though I semi-joke that I’m retired now. My main focus is on climate activism and campaigning, working with Extinction Rebellion nationally and locally. Stephen Fry has supported one of my campaigns. I have a grudge against Amazon and NewsUK.

I’ve been a town councillor and proposed a ‘climate emergency‘ motion for debate. I am a trustee for the Feed Fenland charity, set up to provide free and ‘no questions asked’ meals to the community in Wisbech. Recently I started a Mutual Aid group in my hometown of Downham Market.

I’m an independent journalist reporting on local issues in my home town of Downham Market on downhamweb.

robertshippey.net is some independent reporting of miscellaneous local/environmental issues that don’t really ‘fit’ anywhere else. If you want to get in touch, you can do so from the links below.


If you’re able to, please support my activism by ‘buying me a coffee’ on Ko-fi. Thank you.
