Calendar will help warm churchgoers
Rural scenes of a north Norfolk village through the year will help raise money to keep its ancient church cosy.
The Friends of Neatishead Church were due to launch their first calendar yesterday, featuring photos taken by local people of landmarks and landscapes around the parish.
The 2011 calendars went on sale at �5 each during a wine and nibbles evening in St Peter's Church and the Friends hope all 200 will be snapped up by Christmas-gift hunters.
Friends let villagers know some time ago that they were looking for good local pictures and entries were judged by the public.
Winning scenes include the village's new Victory Hall, a swallowtail butterfly taken in a cottage garden, early morning mist in November, and the snow-covered track to Alderfen taken by Friends' member John Riley.

Friends have previously raised money for a fully-accessible toilet now installed in 700-year-old St Peter's.
The calendar cash will go into a new pot towards upgrading the church heating, although the cost of the project is unknown.
