WE ARE approaching the longest day of the year as the summer solstice is marked on June 21.

And to mark the occasion, we’ve decided to take a video snapshot of life across the area on that day.

We are encouraging readers to take video next Friday to be included in the film.

It could be taken anywhere across the region – from a day at the new Mary Rose Museum in the Historic Dockyard, to a walk in the Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

Or it could be more simple everyday things like the daily walk to school, cooking the family meal, or walking the dog along the seafront.

Once we have your ideas, we’ll pick the best and arrange for them to be edited into our Life in a Day video.

Mark Waldron, editor of The News, said: ‘Next week’s longest day gives us a great – and fun – opportunity to capture a real slice of local life.

‘Our One Summer’s Day picture competition has always proved popular among readers who have taken photos which give a visual snapshot of everyday life in our communities.

‘Life in a Day takes this on by capturing June 21 from sunrise to sunset on video.

‘I look forward to hearing what you could contribute – whether it’s the chaos of family breakfast, an afternoon walk on the beach or an evening barbecue in the back garden.

‘The result should provide us with a fascinating look at how we live our lives.’
