The 2018 Aldershot and Farnborough Calendars on now on sale!

Looking for the perfect stocking filler for this Christmas? How about a truly local present - the 2018 Aldershot or Farnborough calendar!

The calendars each include 12 photos of local landmarks taken by local amateur photographers.

The photos were chosen following a competition run by Rushmoor Borough Council earlier this year, which asked residents to send in their favourite photos of the towns throughout the seasons.

More than 300 entries were received for the two calendars, with the winning photos including The Duke of Wellington Statue, Farnborough Abbey, Princes Gardens Bandstand and Cove Brook.

The calendars are on sale now costing £5 and can be ordered online  from our  2018 calendar competition page or bought in person from the Princes Hall, the council offices in Farnborough and a number of local retailers. Calendars can also be ordered from the Princes Hall Box Office on 01252 329155. Postage costs £1.

Proceeds from the sale of the calendars will go to the Mayor of Rushmoor's chosen charities, which are the Alzheimer Cafe Farnborough, Creating Futures (which supports children and young people to overcome barriers through enabling achievement) and Parkside in Aldershot (which works with people with learning disabilities).

Councillor Gareth Lyon, Cabinet member for Concessions and Community Support at Rushmoor Borough Council, said: "This is the eighth year that we have created the Aldershot Calendar and third year for the Farnborough Calendar, and every year they just keep getting better and better. We really enjoy putting the calendar together and looking through all the beautiful entries. Not only do the calendars raise hundreds of pounds for local charities it is also a great way to celebrate all the hidden treasures in our towns."
