The calendar, which features 12 seasonal shots of Bognor Regis, Felhpam, Littlehampton, Pagham and beyond, was produced by a group of Bognor-based photographers who started a Facebook group in 2017 to share their work.

Twelve photographers contributed to this year’s calendar, taking photos of everything from the pier at sunset to Sussex flowers in bloom.

Alan Barber, who helps curate the calendar, said “I like to diversify. It’s not just about the pier, it’s not just about the beach. It’s about a good image of something interesting around Bognor.”

The group has gone from strength to strength since its first calendar in 2018, which sold 150 copies. Thanks to support from local businesses and in spite of the pandemic, 415 were sold this year.

Mr Barber said: “It’s been fantastic. I really didn’t think people would be wanting to go out under these conditions, but they have. It’s knocked me back sideways.”

Di Levantine, chair of the Sussex Snowdrop Trust, thanked Mr. Barber and the rest of the group for their hard work, calling the calendar a ‘real celebration of community.’

The Sussex Snowdrop Trust provides vital at-home care for terminally ill children. To find out more about their work, visit their website.
