Marianthi Lainas and Jayne Welburn, both live in Hoylake and are keen photographers. They recently decided to set themselves a challenge to create two calenders for 2010 – I love Hoylake and I love West Kirby.
They’re local calenders for local people. Through the calendars we wanted to capture the spirit of the local communities of Hoylake and West Kirby.
The calendar is in a modern, CD format and has 12 landscape photographs of each town. To give it more of a community feel we have involved 12 local people who are featured saying what it is they love about their town.
For Hoylake the local people involved include amongst others, a lifeboatman, butcher, sailing club commodore, volunteers, sandyachter and local historian.
The calendar costs £4.99 and a minimum donation of 10% from sales will be made to the Hoylake Lifeboat Appeal.
The Hoylake calendar is available to buy in a number of shops on Market Street. You can also preview and buy from this website.
