Hundreds of readers flocked to celebrate a century of the Express.

To mark its 100th anniversary the title, which was first published on April 18, 1913, held a stall provided free by South Elmsall Market and gave away goodies to readers. The first 100 customers also bagged themselves a slice of birthday cake created by Hemsworth’s Dianne Stanley of Dream Cake Designs by Dianne.

“It was a brilliant way to mark a century and celebrate with our readers,” said editor Rebecca Whittington.
