The 29th annual selection includes an unusual March snap of the Wesleyan Home Mission’s gospel car, while May showcases Rovers’ star Billy Williams receiving his long service tankard.

June reveals headmaster Mr Blackburn with his 1958 class from George Street School – are you one of the smiling schoolchildren?

An atmospheric shot over a misty rugby ground sums up the November weather, while December shows the fashions of the time as a farm family pose for a picture outside Huntwick Cottages.

Mr Dransfield said: “We’ve sold a lot of calendars already and it’s been very well received. They go all over the world to friends and relatives.”
