Guernsey Electricity’s annual calendar has gone on sale this week with all proceeds going to the GSPCA. The calendar will feature views of the island as captured by Guernsey Electricity employees.
The stunning images were submitted as part of a competition for staff to show off their creative talents.
12 winning images of local beauty spots such as a snowy Vale Church and Lihou Island in the summertime were chosen to appear in the calendar which will be available from the Guernsey Electricity shop, Pet Cabin, Vets for Pets, the GSPCA, Oatlands, Guernsey Airport, Queens Road Doctors Surgery and Co-op Homemaker for a minimum £2 donation to the GSPCA.
Seven different staff members have contributed to the final product. Steve Le Feuvre’s work appears four times within the calendar; for January a shot of Cobo, in February Les Tielles, an October scene at Vazon Bay and the Hanois lighthouse for November.
Antony Gilman produced the shots for April and June of the Bluebell Wood and Lihou Island.
Stacey Le Page’s photograph ‘Island’s View’ features in May and she also captured ‘Snowy Vale Church’ for the festive month of December.
August and September are made up Brian Thorburn’s Grand Havre and St Peter Port Harbour. Dave Smart and Adam Greening also provided their pictures of Fort Grey and Les Becquet Lane.
Overall winner Steve Pattimore, Company Secretary, was given the chance to choose the charity that would benefit from the sales as well as having his image of Grande Havre appear on the front cover of the calendar.
Clare Brouard, Communications Manager at Guernsey Electricity said: “The calendars were great fun to put together and created a bit of friendly rivalry between staff.
“I think they will be great for local people that love the island’s amazing scenery, as a souvenir for tourists visiting Guernsey or as a Christmas gift for a friend or family member who might have moved away.
“It’s also great to support the GSPCA and the important work they do within the local community.”
Last year the calendars benefitted Les Bourgs Hospice and raised a total of £1,230.
