IT is not only the Queen who is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year.

For we at the Chad are now in our 60th year - and we want you to help us celebrate our special birthday.

During the next 12 months, we will be stepping back in time to look back at some of the stories and people who have made the headlines since the Mansfield Chronicle and Mansfield Advertiser newspapers merged in 1952.

We are proud to have brought you unrivalled coverage of news and sport as and when it has happened, from the victorious return home of servicemen and women who fought in the Falklands War in 1982 to the Stags winning the Freight Rover Trophy at Wembley in 1987.

But now we want you to tell us about the stories which you believe have made Chad your favourite local newspaper.

Perhaps you were featured in the paper or have a special memory of an event you were at that you would like to share with us and our readers.

To help us celebrate our diamond anniversary, simply send your photos or write to us at Chad, 121 Newgate Lane, Mansfield, NG18 2PA.
