A 2014 scenic calendar featuring photographs of a North Richmondshire village has been launched.

Newsham (Richmond) decided to produce a local views calendar to raise funds in aid of the village hall, to help with the current work of improving the disabled facilities at the village hall.

Organizer Rose Davies said "When I suggested to the rest of the village hall committee that we should  produce a calendar this year, I got some strange looks. No, I said, not the Calendar Girls variety but one of local views, taken by local people. I received a large number of lovely and varied photos, from which the committee members chose their favourites for the calendar".

Priced at £7.99, the A4 format calendar comprises 12 month to a view pages, each of which contains a picture of the village and its surroundings.

It will be on sale at Newsham's forthcoming Christmas Fair in the vilage hall on Saturday November 16th. There will be a wide variety of quality craft and gift stalls, a tombola and lucky dip, plus homemade soup, hot turkey rolls, tea and coffee on sale.

The fair runs from 11:00am to 2:00pm. More information from Rose Davies on 01833 621300.
