Calendar to feature ‘spirit of Sedgefield’ during corona crisis

Friends of St Edmund’s Church in Sedgefield are pressing ahead with plans to publish their 2021 Calendar depicting the spirit of the community and say they would particularly welcome work by local photographers showing how  townspeople have responded to challenges created by the coronavirus.

Membership secretary Brian Mutch said this week: “Despite the long period in lockdown and the restrictions imposed by Covid19 we know that some people have been very enterprising in capturing life in and around the town during the crisis.”

“The selection panel wants to see interpretative shots of any kind depicting aspects of life that make our town the special place it is,” said Brian .

Entries can be in colour or monochrome and suitable for use in the now traditional, slimline, month-by-month, hang-anywhere calendar which has proved extremely popular with people over a wide area since it was first launched three years ago.

Entries can be sent to Brian via e-mail at or as hard copies to 6 Hasledon Grove, Sedgefield, TS21 2JW.  He would be happy to provide further information on 01740 622302.
