Birthday for The Western Telegraph

The Western Telegraph, Wales’s biggest selling local weekly newspaper, has celebrated its 150th anniversary.

The paper marked the landmark with a 40-page supplement which went out this week highlighting some of the best stories it has covered over the past century and a half.

The Telegraph will produce special sections throughout the year and is marking the milestone by supporting a charity pram push to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Later in the year children will be participating in a schools history competition organised by the paper.

The anniversary celebrations have been given a royal seal of approval with a letter from the Queen, congratulating the staff, editor and management on the paper’s anniversary.
