It is July 24, otherwise known as 24/7. What better day to try to capture 24 hours in the life of York?

The idea was the brainchild of Gavin Aitchison, news editor at the York Press. Reporters there are chronicling various aspects of the city’s life, helped by contributors from all walks of life. You can read the live blog here.

We are doing our little bit too. As we speak YorkMix contributors are journalling their days and nights, coordinated by the team in the nerve centre found high above the city at Mix Towers.

Anyone can join in. Send snippets from your day to us or the Press, or Tweet with the hashtag #york247.

Or simply sit back and watch how other people’s lives unfold.

Like the Press, we will be publishing our diarists’ days. Perhaps one day historians will look back at them and ask: what exactly was a chocolate Hobnob?
