Oldham Chronicle rolls off the presses for the first time in 2 years

Date published: 15 January 2020

Your Oldham Evening Chronicle is back in print from today for a special one-off edition looking back at 2019 across the borough.

As you pick your way through our 28-page full-colour edition of the Chronicle, you can recall some of the heart-warming highlights, and thought-provoking controversies that come with living in our busy, busy town.

Working our way through the year, do you recall the Oldham Foodbank van being stolen in January, or the sight of Latics players being drafted in to clear the snow from the Boundary Park pitch in February?

How about homes being evacuated due to the mill fire in Delph in April, or the Lyceum Theatre's 90th anniversary celebrations in May?

There was big news in June when Edwina Currie visited Oldham Sixth Form College, and perhaps you remember the sights and sounds of the awesome Saddleworth Show in July?

Our 'All Things Latics' podcast was introduced in August, you might recall the chaos in Dobcross in September when a lorry knocked over a landmark monument

November brought us 'Undiegate' and the tale of Council Leader Sean Fielding's supposedly humorous tweet and December brought us the General Election - and while Labour held on locally, Boris Johnson's Conservatives swept unerringly to a landslide UK victory.

On top of all that and more, you'll find in-depth yearly look-backs from Latics, the Roughyeds, the Oldham music scene, the Coliseum Theatre and Dr Kershaw's Hospice.

We've also focused sharply on the Oldham Business awards, the Sports awards, Cotton Clouds festival, the battle to save Oldham Post Office and Steve Hill's escapades.

The special printed edition of the Oldham Chronicle is available in supermarkets, and selected newsagents across the borough.  

And as a thanks for supporting your local newspaper, our special edition is FREE to pick up.
