THE summer solstice is upon us, and your Matlock Mercury is looking to celebrate the ‘Longest Day’ of the year with a snapshot of life in the Dales and Peak.

On Friday, our news team plans to rise from their beds before sunrise, and retire to rest when the sun goes down.

During that time, we plan to capture – on video – a day in the life of a Derbyshire resident.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, the humdrum to the extraordinary.

We want you to pull out your smartphones and shoot a short 30 second clip of something happening in your life on the longest day.

We’re looking for scores of snapshots of life – not just scenery, but work, play, children, adults, old, young – you name it, we need YOU to film it!

So get filming and send your clips to news@matlockmercury.
