WHAT ingredients make a typical day in the life of Hartlepool?

Friday, June 21, is the longest day of the year and we are using the occasion to record 24 hours in the life of our town in a mini-movie – and we want you to be a part of it.

Throughout the coming week, our team of reporters and photographers will be out and about capturing clips to be edited together.

And you can get involved by sending us your own short pieces of footage and be part of the Summer of Love campaign.

It could be from a game of cricket, a walk down the beach, your desk at work or a playpark. They could include a cracking sunset, children playing, the bacon sarnie run or ordering a pint.

It really is up to you. If you think it sums up a part of Hartlepool life, or show’s why you are proud to be from the town, then send us your clip.

Try to keep them nice and short – 15 seconds is ideal – and we will endeavour to make you part of Hartlepool’s Longest Day.

Feel free to get in touch with suggestions for clips you would like to see or if you want to be in the short film.

We’ll be uploading videos throughout the Friday before putting the finished piece up on the night.
