Steven Clark! Congratulations on attracting the most votes from the Festival attendees.  And thank you to everyone who submitted photos of wide variety and creativity.

The calendars will cost £5 each, with an optional recycled card envelope for mailing (small packet dimensions) available for 50p.  We aim to be selling them very soon on random sunny days next to the car park notice board so look out for them.  They will also be available at the AGM in Shrewsbury House on 19th October.

All the other entries have the opportunity of being used on this website in future so keep your eye on it!
