This year your St Helens Star celebrates an amazing 40 years since our launch back in 1973. We will be reliving all the big stories: the successes and generosity of local people, your hopes and heartbreaks and the tougher news which has formed an increasing part of our coverage. We hope that over those 40 years, the Star has been a welcome guest in thousands of homes as we continue to fly the flag for St Helens, our town and our readers.
