Created by Rushmoor Borough Council and sponsored by Grainger PLC, the developers of the new Wellesley housing development, the calendar includes 12 photos of Aldershot taken by local amateur photographers.

The photos were selected in a public photography competition earlier this year. The competition asked local people to send in their favourite photos of the town throughout the seasons and attracted more than 120 entries. The winning photos include the Aldershot Observatory, Weybourne Road Cottages, The Wellington Statue, Long Valley at Caesars Camp and Aldershot Park.

The calendars cost £5 each and all proceeds from the sales are going to The Vine Day Centre in Aldershot, which support homeless and vulnerable adults aged 25 and over and is one the Mayor of Rushmoor, Councillor Diane Bedford’s charities. 

Councillor Bedford, said: “We are so pleased with the amount of money that has been raised for a worthy local charity from the sales of this year’s calendar - thank you to everyone who bought a copy. “

She added: “Each year the photos entered into the competition are amazing, and this year was no exception. I would encourage all local photographers to get out there and start snapping so as to be able to enter the 2016 competition later this year.”

Mags Mercer, Chief Executive of The Vine Day Centre, said: “We are delighted that the Aldershot Community has purchased the lovely calendars.   Thanks to everyone involved.  All funds raised go directly to helping the homeless and vulnerable in our society engage in a positive journey of change.”
