Make a date with H2A’s new stocking-filler…
…And enjoy a bit of Wrekin on your wall in 2013.
As of yesterday, H2A’s 2013 Round The Wrekin calendars are in the shops – or rather, the shop (the very accomodating Ken Francis Butchers in Market Street). They include twelve images of The Wrekin and Wellington through the seasons.
I took the photos and did the other bits of design work, so the only cost has been the printing, which means we can keep the price at a very reasonable £6 a piece whilst still making £2 from each sale. All that profit will go towards H2A’s community events – things like the Midsummer Fayre and Sounds in The Square season. So, for every copy you buy, you’re helping us keep our events going. Last year they sold pretty quickly, so don’t hang around!
Here are the scenes you can expect to see inside…
JANUARY: A snowy field near Allscott
FEBRUARY: A misty evening at the foot of The Ercall
MARCH: A tree-carving in Apley Woods
APRIL: Wild garlic on The Wrekin
MAY: A woodland track on The Wrekin
JUNE: Dancers in Market Square, Wellington
JULY: Summer showers on top of The Wrekin
AUGUST: Harvest time at Neve’s Castle, near The Wrekin
SEPTEMBER: Barrel-racing on The Wrekin
OCTOBER: The Wrekin from Rowton
NOVEMBER: The Wrekin in Autumn, from Cressage
DECEMBER: All Saints Churchyard in the snow, Wellington
And if that wasn’t enough, the calendar also includes dates for a handful of local events – Charter Day, carnivals and fayres, special days at Sunnycroft and a few other things besides. And if you’re first to spot the deliberate mistake that crops up – and email me to tell me – you’ll win two free tickets to our Real Ale Ceilidh Night on 1st December – so start searching.
