CALLING all readers! We’re planning to celebrate the Queen’s visit to York in her Diamond Jubilee year in style, by publishing a special supplement packed with memories of her previous visits and her years on the throne.

To help us, we’d love to hear from any readers who have personal connections with the Queen.

Were you or a member of your family born on the same day as Her Majesty – April 21, 1926? Or were you born on the day she became Queen – February 6, 1952? Or on the day of her coronation – June 2, 1953?

Perhaps you received Maundy Money from Her Majesty on one of her previous visits to York? Or did you meet her and chat to her as she walked around the city?

If so, please do get in touch. We want to make our souvenir supplement as special as possible. “We’re especially keen to hear from any of our readers who were born on the same day as the Queen,” said Fran Clee, the deputy editor of The Press.

“We know from records that a Mary Elizabeth Wright was born in James Street on April 21, 1926.

“Like the Queen, she’d be 86 now. She may well have married and changed her name, or even have moved away from the area.

“But if you’re still here, Mary, we’d love to hear from you, to find out about your life. “And we’d love to hear from anyone else born on that day, or anyone else with memories of the Queen and her visits that they would like to share with us.”

So, if you were born on the same day as the Queen, or if you simply have great memories or photographs that you’d like to share with us, please get in touch.

Then we can make sure we celebrate Her Majesty’s visit with a supplement that does justice to her 60 years on the throne.
