A VILLAGE is to launch its own calendar following a photographic competition among residents.
The new 2015 calendar for Hartington illustrates the village through the seasons.
Staff from Leek School of Art, part of Buxton & Leek College, took on the tricky task of judging the 120 photographs submitted for the fund-raising project to aid the refurbishment of Hartington Village Hall.
Now 14 villagers, from schoolchildren to pensioners, will see their photos featured in the £7.99 calendar which goes on sale this month at the village flower festival.
Janet Bray, chairman of the Friends of Hartington Village Hall, explained: "We have a lovely village hall with a sprung maple dance floor but it is in need of some updating, not least a new heating system.
"I think the staff from Leek School of Art did a brilliant job in choosing the images – even though my photo wasn't judged a winner."
Judge Anne-Lise Fraser, a lecturer at the School of Art, said: "It was a very difficult task to judge because so many wonderful photos were submitted but we eventually agreed on which prints should be included in the calendar.
