a COMMUNITY calendar that will celebrate all the brilliant and quirky bits of Belper is to hit the shelves in time for 2012.

Launched by three local residents, the Belper Community Calendar 2012 will feature the town’s people, places, crafts, food and events.

The idea is the brainchild of Belper trio Sophie Purser, 28, Beth Purser, 30, and Dan Baker, 36. They have also revealed that a portion of the proceeds will go to the Strutts Centre in the town.

Mum-of-two Sophie is in the process of collating interesting images from the community to appear in the calendar.

She said: “Everybody is welcome to submit an image to appear in the calendar – individuals, groups, schools, clubs, artists, photographers, crafters, bakers, movers or shakers!

“We really want to create a sense of pride in the calendar, celebrating the scenery, people and crafts of Belper which make it such a great place to live.

“I can’t wait to discover other people’s favourite bits of Belper, whether it’s a view, a street, something touching or something funny!

“We hope to create a unique calendar celebrating the town’s best bits and reminding people what’s happening locally throughout the year.

“You may have photographs of Belper knee-deep in snow earlier this year, your garden in full bloom, or a special day spent in Belper.

“Perhaps you’ve painted a local view, cooked up some local produce or made a craft based on the history of Belper? Any of these would be great to include in the calendar.”

The calendar will also feature a wealth of information on events in Belper and the surrounding villages.

To submit an image for use in the calendar email info@belpercalendar.co.uk (in jpeg or PDF format) or post your artwork/image to Peak Wellbeing, 1st Floor, 59 King Street, Belper, DE56 1QA.

The deadline for submitting an image for the calendar is Wednesday, August 31.
