Get the splendour of country parks in your own home

A year’s worth of views of Warwickshire County Council’s country parks and greenways are being featured for the first time in a calendar.

The calendar is now on sale and offers people the chance to see some of the beauty spots around the county.
This is the first time a calendar has been produced, with all the country parks featured. Pictures range from bluebells in spring at Hartshill Hayes Country Park to early morning winter solitude at Kingsbury Water Park and from snow at Ryton Pools Country Park to a canal boat passing Pooley’s Visitor Centre.

The calendars are already proving popular with visitors. They can be purchased via the parks’ popular walking and cycling publications mail order service, by calling 024 7630 5592, or at any of the country parks’ Visitor Centres. The calendars cost £2.25 each, but when two are purchased, the third is free.

For further information about the calendar, or for more details about Warwickshire County Council’s Country Parks and its programme of events and activities, call 01827 872660 or email parks@warwickshire.gov.uk or visit the website at http://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/countryside
