    anyone from wellingborough?

    When i was a kid we were on holiday in wellingborough at Easter. We bought some raffle tickets in the local shopping center for an Easter raffle, and ended up winning. We collected our prize at a local newspaper office and were featured in the local paper at the time. Does anyone know which paper it might have been? Im looking to get a copy of the article.

    Google lists a few:

    Northamptonshire Telegraph
    HeraldandPost
    Northamptonshire and Northants Extra Newspapers

    More than likely the Evening Telegraph, which is now a weekly paper. Possibly the herald. Is there something you'd like me to keep an eye out for?

    Ah, not something I'll have lying around then The ET's office are usually really helpful with things like that but I suspect there may be an admin fee.

    Ooh this brings back memories.
    Do they still do the thing where they hide a little character somewhere in the paper to find?
