The Lewes Calendar 2022
The Lewes Calendar is made up of beautiful photos taken 'in and around Lewes'.
It aims to showcase the work of local photographers, raise a donation for a local cause and let us all enjoy the delightful town of Lewes.
In the UK calendars are £12 each including postage/packaging/delivery/an extra envelope in case you choose to gift the calendar.
Order should be placed by 20th November 2022. Calendars will then be printed and dispatched in plenty of time for Christmas.
The calendar is an A4 booklet calendar which opens up to give an A3 calendar on the wall. It includes space for you to add your family's activities.
If you want to see last year's calendar look at the Facebook group 'The Lewes Calendar' where there is a video at the top.

Photos need to be landscape and of high resolution (300dpi and A4). They need to reflect the seasons so do please send them in throughout the year or dig out your best ones! They can be anything 'in and around Lewes'.
Why a calendar?
In March 2020 I started a covid response group - The Lewes Coronavirus Volunteers. It was a demanding task and taking daily photos on my daily walk became a nice antidote. I saw that others would benefit just as I did. I created a Facebook group called Lewes Photography where pictures could be posted. This group has a pleasant and supportive vibe and soon many fabulous pictures were being added. I wondered how the fabulous work of the local photographers posting in this group could be promoted. The idea for The Lewes Calendar was born.
The donation to the causes will be half the profit from the sales of the calendar. Last year's calendar raised £244.76. This was divided between The Bevern Trust, Landport Community Cafe and Lewes Open Door. This year's cause is being decided.
Any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are abroad I can create a listing for postage.
