Limited Edition Calendar on Sale
Your Christmas present problems solved!
A limited edition 2009 wall calendar has just gone on sale to raise funds for the Save Dreamland Campaign and the Friends of the Shell Grotto (FOSG). Printed by Margate printer Thanet Press, the calendar features views of Dreamland amusement park and cinema as well as the Grotto in years gone by. Priced at £6.50 each, the idea started off with a request from Thanet Press to journalist Nick Evans, who has a large collection of Dreamland memorabilia, to borrow photos for its customer calendar.
“I was happy to lend the pictures but wanted some benefit to come from the project and Thanet Press readily agreed to print 200 extra copies to help raise money for both of these worthy causes. They have done a first class job and I’m sure the calendar will quickly become a collector’s item,” said Nick.
The calendar features seven months dedicated to Dreamland, with the remaining months shared between the Shell Grotto, Dreamland Cinema and the Lido.
Susan Marsh, chair of FOSG, commented: “We’re grateful to Nick for suggesting this idea and to everyone at Thanet Press, particularly Craig Durrant, for their generosity. The calendars are excellent quality and will be a great help to our fundraising efforts.”
Calendars are on sale at the Grotto, which is open weekends only between 11am and 4pm until Christmas. Alternatively, drop into Lovelys art shop, Northdown Road, Cliftonville, open 9am-5pm Monday to Saturday.
