Motueka calendar ready for holiday season

September 23rd, 2016

John Fisher, chairman of Keep Motueka Beautiful, and Melissa Gray of Specialised Print, view the first copies of the Motueka 2017 calendar.

A 2017 calendar featuring photos of Motueka's attractions has been printed and is ready for sales leading into the Christmas and tourism retail season.

Keep Motueka Beautiful hopes the calendar will help promote the town and surrounds to a wider audience, and in particular celebrate the work done by KMB to create and improve parks and walkways.

The product is targeted for Motueka residents to send as Christmas presents to friends and relatives overseas, and for tourists wanting a pictorial souvenir of the town to take home.

One thousand copies of the high-quality product have been printed and are available at selected outlets initially.

As tourist numbers build up the calendars will be made available at other participating cafes and accommodation providers.

At present the calendars, priced at $10 including an envelope, can be bought at Motueka i-Site, Muses Cafe, Kaiwaka Cafe and Elevation Cafe. Some will be sold at times from a table at the New World supermarket entrance.

Specially featured in the calendar are 17 photos of local scenes taken and donated by a dozen photographers, most of them members of the Motueka Camera Club.

The design and pre-production of the calendar was done by Melissa Gray, of Specialised Print, free of charge.

"We hope the calendar highlights Motueka's attractions for residents and visitors, and provides a souvenir for visitors and friends and relatives outside town," says KMB chairman John Fisher.

"We also wanted to highlight Keep Motueka Beautiful's efforts, in conjunction with TDC, to make the town an attraction and a great place to live."

Funds raised will also help the group to maintain the existing gardens and walkways they have created, and take on some new projects in the planning stage.

Calendars may also be ordered and collected from project coordinator David Armstrong by emailing
