The Sentinel celebrates 300!


In December 1995, the Sentinel celebrated its 300th edition.  To mark the occasion they published some of their best headlines and front pages

The paper also covered a range of stories including a visit to the Calders by Terry Nutkins to help local children plant trees as part of National Tree Week.  Nearly 800 trees were planted.
