It’s been 10 years

Ten years ago, when we decided to produce a Scenes Around Oundle calendar to raise funds to support Oundle Library, we never expected still to be producing one each year. Yet here we are!

Now our 2022 calendar has gone on sale and you can buy it at Oundle Library, Oundle Bookshop and Colemans for just £6.00. The pictures are terrific!

From tables to tea urns

The calendar is by far our biggest fundraiser and over the years has enabled us to purchase some substantial items for the library. In 2013, proceeds from the sale of our very first calendar bought a new rug for the children’s library and a brand new reading table. And since then, it’s paid for everything from mobile shelving units, armchairs and book trolleys, to craft supplies and tea urns.

In 2022

Earlier this year (and thanks to the availability of some Section 106 funds) there were building works at the library, and there is now a new fire exit that leads down to a covered garden patio. It is our hope that we can further improve the library garden in 2022 to create an outdoor space for everyone to enjoy, and the sale proceeds from the calendar will be used for this project. 

Photos and sponsors

More than 100 photos were entered into this year’s photography competition. We’d like to thank everyone who entered, and the winners who have allowed us to use their wonderful images. It was such a difficult job to choose just 12 pictures from so many great photos! 

Finally, a huge thank you to all the local businesses which sponsor us. We couldn’t produce the calendar without them, and their generosity means that every penny of the money we raise can be used to help Oundle Library. And that, after all, is what it’s all about!
