Theresa May, Prime Min­is­ter

“For al­most 60 years, The Sun­day Tele­graph has been an in­dis­pens­able part of the week­end in hun­dreds of thou­sands of homes, in­clud­ing 10 Down­ing Street. Back in 1961 Harold Macmil­lan wasted no time in declar­ing it his favourite Sun­day news­pa­per, and a copy has found its way to the ‘flat above the shop’ most week­ends since.

“As Scyld Berry would note, 3,000 not out is quite an in­nings. So con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery­one at The Sun­day Tele­graph on reach­ing this mile­stone – and all the very best for the next 3,000.”

David Cameron, for­mer prime min­is­ter

“Con­grat­u­la­tions on the 3,000th edi­tion of The Sun­day Tele­graph. A lot has changed since 1961 – and the pres­sure is on jour­nal­ists to de­liver news and views faster than ever be­fore. To run a seven-day op­er­a­tion that in­cludes pro­duc­ing a qual­ity Sun­day pa­per is a great achieve­ment for the Tele­graph team. So well done – and here’s to an­other 3,000 edi­tions.”

Gor­don Brown, for­mer prime min­is­ter

“There is a say­ing that the first 500 years of any Bri­tish in­sti­tu­tion’s his­tory are al­ways the most dif­fi­cult. How­ever, The Sun­day Tele­graph has dis­proved this, achiev­ing across-the­board suc­cess and ex­cel­lence in its cov­er­age of news and the arts and of sports and fi­nance.

“Con­grat­u­la­tions on the 3,000th edi­tion of the news­pa­per.”

Lord Howard, for­mer Con­ser­va­tive leader

“It is dif­fi­cult to re­mem­ber Sun­days with­out The Sun­day Tele­graph.

“It has now be­come an in­dis­pens­able part of my Sun­day and that of so many oth­ers. Long may it con­tinue.”

An­drew Roberts, his­to­rian

“I’ve been read­ing The Sun­day Tele­graph for 40 years and have not only been pro­foundly per­son­ally and po­lit­i­cally shaped by it, but have also be­come friendly with many of its stel­lar writ­ers over the years, such as Pere­grine Worsthorne, Charles Moore, and the late Ken­neth Rose and Frank John­son.

“The pa­per ex­udes the pa­tri­otic, com­mon-sense To­ry­ism of the ages, which is needed now more than ever. To read it is like be­ing in­vited to the most in­tel­lec­tu­ally sat­is­fy­ing of din­ner par­ties. Roll on the next 3,000 is­sues!”

Lord Archer, au­thor

“Three good rea­sons I’ve stayed with The Sun­day Tele­graph for 50 years: Vic­tor Pritch­ett, Oliver Pritch­ett and Matthew Pritch­ett. I go back to bed when I read the words ‘Matt is away’.”

Michael Vaughan OBE, for­mer Eng­land cricket cap­tain

“It is an hon­our and priv­i­lege to work for a news­pa­per that has such a long and distin­guished his­tory. I look for­ward to the next 3,000 edi­tions which will in­clude, hope­fully, in 2019 Eng­land win­ning the cricket World Cup for the first time and re­gain­ing the Ashes.”

Jo Malone CBE, en­tre­pre­neur

“Over the last 25 years The Sun­day Tele­graph has been a pub­li­ca­tion that I have not only en­joyed as a reader, but it has also been im­mensely sup­port­ive and played a huge part in build­ing both of my busi­nesses. I re­mem­ber back to the launch of Jo Malone Lon­don in lit­tle Wal­ton Street and how The Tele­graph told a story of an en­tre­pre­neur build­ing her dreams. Later on, when we were about to an­nounce to the world that we were com­ing back into the in­dus­try with Jo Loves, The Tele­graph aph was the pa­per we went to to tell the story. It was an amaz­ing piece writ­ten by Bry­ony Gor­don – it told the story of a shop­keeper who just couldn’t quit.

“As a small busi­ness, th­ese pieces not only cre­ate aware­ness for your brand but pro­pel it to new heights. Hav­ing one of your prod­ucts fea­tured in Stella Mag­a­zine cre­ates such ex­cite­ment within teams, know­ing that all of their hard work has been ac­knowl­edged. “I am so de­lighted to con­grat­u­late The Sun­day Tele­graph on its 3,000th edi­tion. Thank you for your sup­port to me and to many other SMEs all the way across the coun­try – help­ing us to tell our story and cre­ate a GREAT Bri­tish Busi­ness of the fu­ture.”

Dame Jenni Mur­ray, broad­caster

“I was 10, go­ing on 11, when we saw the BBC Satur­day evening news an­nounce that a new news­pa­per was com­ing off the presses. The film of the op­er­a­tion looked so ex­cit­ing, I got up early the next morn­ing with my fa­ther to buy the first edi­tion of The Sun­day Tele­graph – 28 pages for 5d.

“Dad loved it, es­pe­cially a young Nigel Law­son’s share tips. Mum was hor­ri­fied that the pa­per ap­proved of Pen­guin mak­ing Lady Chat­ter­ley avail­able to English­men.”

Lord Law­son, for­mer chan­cel­lor

“As its first City Ed­i­tor, more than half a cen­tury ago, I con­grat­u­late The Sun­day Tele­graph on what it has achieved so far and wish it all the very best for the fu­ture.”

Dame Stephanie Shirley, phi­lan­thropist

“Most busy peo­ple en­joy brows­ing through the Sun­day papers. I started read­ing The Sun­day Tele­graph in the early Six­ties when I founded my soft­ware com­pany of women. I al­ways made time to en­joy it, both in the dif­fi­cult days when we were strug­gling to es­tab­lish our­selves and later in the fre­netic years prior to float­ing on the main Lon­don Stock Ex­change.

“I’ve al­ways loved the pub­li­ca­tion’s hon­est rep­re­sen­ta­tion of how women have mor­phed from sec­ond-class cit­i­zens to com­plete hu­man be­ings – un­apolo­getic about our strengths. It con­tin­ues to en­ter­tain and in­form my eclec­tic in­ter­ests – stem­ming from my refugee start, my in­ter­na­tional busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties, my son’s autism and my post-re­tire­ment phi­lan­thropy.

“The Sun­day Tele­graph has my enor­mous re­spect. It re­minds me of the many things I want to do; be­ing in its 3,000th edi­tion is a won­der­ful start.”

Ben Fogle, broad­caster and ad­ven­turer

“I love The Sun­day Tele­graph. For more than a decade it was my con­stant com­pan­ion while I trav­elled the world. Ev­ery week, no mat­ter where I was, I would some­how have to get 500 words back to the news­pa­per. Some­times I would dic­tate it over the phone. I faxed it. Emailed it. I even texted it. I filed copy from as far afield as French Poly­ne­sia and Antarc­tica and on top­ics as di­verse as sting­ing net­tle eat­ing to the loss of my child. Through highs and lows. In dan­ger and dis­com­fort. Through beauty and won­der, The Sun­day Tele­graph was al­ways on my mind and the im­por­tance of de­liv­er­ing my words to join the late fel­low colum­nist Terry Wo­gan on the back page. In many ways The Sun­day Tele­graph and all her read­ers trav­elled with me on those hun­dreds of as­sign­ments. Over ten years I shared nearly a quar­ter of a mil­lion words from the wilder­ness and the coun­try­side. Happy 3,000th birth­day The Sun­day Tele­graph.”
