TODAY is Fathers’ Day – the day we thank all the important male figures in our lives for everything they’ve done and continue to do for us.

Whether it’s dads, uncles, brothers of family friends, today is the day to let them know how grateful you are to have them in your life.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been asking readers to share their Fathers’ Day messages and photos, telling us what makes their dad so special and whey he’s head and shoulders above the rest.

Here are some of those messages dedicated to the dads and other father figures in Winsford and Middlewich on Fathers’ Day.

He is so selfless, caring, generous and most of all my everything.
