Miss March and I met some of the Salisbury Rugby Club Ladies' team recently, with Mandy Milford from Hilltop Studios taking the photos. It was a bit windy, and dare I say "exposed" up there, but we got some terrific shots - thanks girls for making yourselves available. Great fun.

Roger Stanwell from the Lord Nelson Arms recently hosted an Italian evening for us where guests could pay what they thought the meal was worth, and the Calendar Girls take the profits. What a fun evening we had - seven of us were waitresses, we had a full house, the place was buzzing, and we made a phenomenol £543! Thank you to everyone who made this possible.

A date for your diary - Saturday 9th July, 2.30 - 5.30pm - a vintage tea party at Spencer's Farm, Winterslow SP5 1RJ (opposite the log stack in Livery Road). Enjoy a quintessential English tea, served by - guess who? - yes, the Calendar Girls! Stalls, raffle (amazing prizes) and entertainment. £5 per ticket. Call Karryne on 01722 712447 for more information.

Fantastic news - John Glen MP has offered to host our launch party at Salisbury Racecourse on 28th September! He has always been very keen to support local businesses, and since all our sponsors are local independent businesses, he is delighted to get involved and help us promote the Calendar and our sponsors at the same time. All sponsors will get a personal invitation to the launch party, and we would love to see you there too - first race is 2.00pm, the calendars will be on sale for the first time, and most of the Calendar Girls will be there too - don't miss out, it will be a great afternoon!

Finally, we did a couple more photoshoots last week - thankfully missing the rain. The first one was at Heale House featuring 3 ladies, a pink wheelbarrow and not much else! The second photo was indoors at LED Synergy who manufacture digital display boards - they rigged up a fab digital display for 3 naked ladies to pose around - don't want to spoil the surprise, so you'll just have to wait until you buy your calendar!

Next posting will be in a few weeks' time once we've taken some more photos, and been on a trip to the Bournemouth Pavilion to see ......... "The Calendar Girls" surprise surprise! Watch this space.
