Crosspool calendar proves to be big success

15 Dec

Crosspool News -

2015 Crosspool calendar The 2015 Crosspool calendar has been a big success and is now on its third print run

The final batch of 2015 Crosspool calendars will go on sale this week after the first two print runs sold out.

The initial 100 calendars sold out in a few days, so Crosspool Forum decided to print another 100. The second batch sold out just as quickly and with a waiting list of people wanting calendars the decision was taken to print a final 100.

The first 20 or so of these calenders should be on sale now for £4 in Crosspool Pets and Enhance. The final 80 are scheduled to arrive on Tuesday morning.

The calendar features Crosspool scenes from over the years. Many of the photos in the calendar are taken by local residents, plus there are some archive shots showing familiar locations looking very different in times gone by.
