By the way

2016 Calendar is here

UPDATE: 2017 calendar information is now available by clicking here

I wasn’t sure whether I’d do a calendar again this year. I dithered, umm’d and ah’d then I was persuaded by the lovely guys at my local photographic printers, Clifton Colour, who just made it easy for me. Two advantages of doing it via them: one, the print quality is fabulous. No comparison with lithographic printing. Two: I can do it on-demand and not have to guess in advance how many I might need. They do cost more per unit, that’s really the only downside that I can see. I hope you like them. I have to say, I’m quietly proud of what we’ve come up with.

The calendar features, drum roll…! in order of appearance:

Cover: Hikmet Kandegdi, 83, Turkey.

January: Charles Eugster, 96, Great Britain.

February: Rosa Pederson, 85, Denmark.

March: Doug ‘Shaggy’ Smith, 63, Canada.

July: Gerhard Windolf, 91, Germany.

August: Ikuko Suzuki, 78, Japan.

September: Pengxue Su, 87, China.

October: Sue Yeomans, 62, Great Britain.

November: Emilio de la Camara ,71, Spain.

December: Leontine Vitola, 77, Latvia.

The calendar is A4 size (20.4cm x 30.4cm or 8″ x 12″ ).Cost: £10/$15 (U.S.) per calendar plus p&p. Postage for one calendar is UK £1.85; Europe £4.30, Rest of World except Australia & new Zealand £5 their explanation.35; Australia & NZ £5.65.

    Hello Alex, can you quote me for 5 calendars please? My old friend, Ruthie (who you know from park run)and Guy gave me a calendar and I'd like to give some more - they are brill! I'm 63 and have started cycling 100 mile events and just love it.
    Thanks. Diana
