DO you have any video footage of days to remember from historic times gone by?
We're keen to expand our coverage of Cheshire's rich heritage on this blog.
If you had a cine camera and took a film of a Royal visit or a big event at your works, we'd love to hear from you.
Likewise, if you shot some film at a street party or your school sports... anything at all that would jog the memories of those who were there.
If you can help, please contact our multi-media editor James Shepherd at our Chester office on 01244 606401.
He will be able to explain how to transmit video together with an explanation of when and where it was taken.
You can also email James at firstname.lastname@example.org
