Help us capture a day in the life of Mansfield

Longest Day
Longest Day

THE summer solstice is upon us, and Chad is looking to celebrate the ‘Longest Day’ of the year on Friday with a snapshot of life in our amazing area.

We need people to help us by sharing videos, tweets and Facebook updates so that we can tell the story of a day in the life of Mansfield.

We plan to spend the day sharing your activities and celebrating the people and places that make Mansfield a fantastic place to live and work.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the humdrum to the extraordinary. We want you to pull out your smartphones and shoot a short 30 second clip of something happening in your life on the longest day.

We’re looking for scores of snapshots of life – not just scenery, but work, play, children, adults, old, young – you name it, we need YOU to film it, and email it to us –

We will then be uploading all the videos at the end of the day to make one special film showcasing the very best that Mansfield has to offer.

Make a note and look us up on Facebook (, follow us on Twitter (@ChadNews) and email us If you have a video you want to share, why not pop into our Newgate Lane office with your video on a memory stick and we will inlude it in our special film. We also be using the #longestlocalday hashtag if you want to get involved or search for us on Twitter.

This exciting initiative is all part of our Summer Of Love campaign that runs throughout June.
