Hi all

The calendar project is over for another year! Big Grin

This year proceeds are going to the Cambrian Mines Trust. We sold 118 calendars, and after costs (print, PayPal, envelopes and postage) the project made a total profit of £719.76.

Thank you everybody who provided photos and who bought a copy Thumb Up

I'll get a cheque sent out to Roy Fellows / CMT first thing in the new year and hope it helps further his work at Cwmystwyth.

I have been deeply rouched by the kindness and support that I have received with my CMT initiative the aquisition of the Cwmystwyth Mines.
I have always made it plain that I do what I do because its what I'm interested in and what I enjoy doing.
Anyway, I would like to thank everyone for their kindness and wish everyone a good Chrismas and new year. The new year could well bring something good, and not only at Cwmystwyth. I have one of my 'secret' projects on the go at the moment which could have some interesting results.
If anyone bumps into it underground, please keep it quiet for the time being.

Thank you all again.

Brilliant result, brilliant calendar, win-win. Everybody happy... Big Grin

(Oh, forgot, many thanks to those who submitted their photos and to the production and distribution crew. I'm going to enjoy it and I'm sure all those who got one will also enjoy the calendar too)
