Swindon’s own calendar girl supports Queen’s Park

Queen’s Park and the Secret Garden are delightful spots. So how wonderful to discover, thanks to social media, that Debs Donkersley has got a calendar put together featuring her own photographs to raise funds towards its preservation.

What a fab initiative! Well done Debs.

From the Swindon Advertiser: 

“BEAUTIFUL images of one of Swindon’s parks have been turned onto a calendar to help pay for its preservation.

Debs Donkersley took the pictures on her many walks through Queens Park. She regularly posts photos on the park’s Facebook page but decided to create a calendar to boost the funds of the community council that keeps the park blooming.

Priced at £7, it will be on sale from next week with proceeds helping to support the community council’s work in preserving and improving the park … “

English Heritage considers the space to be of historic interest and has listed it as a Grade II site on the national register of parks and gardens.

The calendar will be on sale at Bake ‘n’ Roll in Groundwell Road and at Baristocrats cafe in Commercial Road.
