From the paper delivery boy and the newsagents who sold the Observer to the former editors who created it; we want to hear from anyone who has contributed to the production of the Observer over the years.

We would also love to hear from readers – how do you remember the paper and how has it changed over the years?

And the search is still on to find the oldest copy of the Accrington Observer.

The Observer offices were originally in Peel Street and the paper was partly printed in Blackburn on the Blackburn Times presses.

We want your old photographs, pictures, newspaper articles and memories.

If you think you own the oldest copy or if you would like to contribute to our anniversary celebrations please contact the Accrington Observer newsdesk on 0161 211 2977, email us at accringtonobserver@menmedia.co.uk or post on the Observer's Ex Pats online column.
