Our 2021 calendar


The design of our 2021 calendar is taking shape, and it will be ready for sale from November.  The theme this year is “Hartford – two thousand years in twelve months” and the images for each month will be linked to two pages of notes on Hartford’s history.  It will start with January linked to the time when Romans would have marched along our Chester Road (their Watling Street North).  December will feature our iconic blue bridge.

We only print a limited number of calendars (both A4 format when opened out, and the slim line version with more room for daily notes), so if you want to be sure of a copy, e-mail .  Your e-mails may prompt us to increase the print order.  Our 2021 calendar will be a collector’s item for sure.

The two pages of history notes draw heavily on our newsletter articles.  A compilation of these can now be downloaded here. (The full document may take a few seconds to download).

We like to have a different calendar theme each year, and also run a competition for all age groups, with prizes.  There was so much of Hartford’s history that we could have used for our 2021 calendar, that we will probably run the same theme for a second year as well and invite your contributions.  Send in your ideas now; we will make sure that you are entered into the competition.  Or wait until you see the calendar.  Order yours now.
