A weekly newspaper has celebrated its 200th birthday by publishing a souvenir supplement to mark the milestone.
The Windsor Express was the brainchild of father and son Charles Knight senior and junior who published the first edition on 1 August 1812 and since then it has covered the reigns of nine kings and queens.
The paper has published a 12-page pull-out to celebrate its anniversary, which includes messages of congratulations from local mayors and MPs.
Reporter Francis Batt, who has worked at the title since 1978, was awarded a Royal Borough medal by former Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Asghar Majeed, to recognise his long service.
Editor Martin Trepte said: “For two centuries the Express has faithfully served its readers by chronicling the events, large and small that have shaped our culture, community and country.
“To historians the Express is a unique and invaluable record of everyday life, a picture of the social history – the values and small details – that makes us what we are.
“But before something can become history, it first has to be today’s news and the Express is first and foremost a newspaper – whether in print or online.
“Every week its pages report the latest news – telling readers what is happening in their community, informing, shaping opinion and holding those in power and authority to account.”
The company says the Express series titles have a joint readership of more than 84,000 each week.
