ST NICHOLAS Church is a charming little building nestled in the heart of Checkley, and as is the case with many rural churches, relies on local fundraising to help ensure its survival.

To this end, in 2013, churchwarden, Bob Hall hatched an idea to produce a calendar which would celebrate the heritage of the area. With the help of locals, Bob sourced photographs and put the plan into action.

Since then, a similar theme has been used for each Checkley Heritage Calendar and locals have contributed precious memories from their photographic archives to contribute to the project.

The 2020 calendars are now available from Bob Hall, Woodbines, Checkley, Hereford HR1 4ND or

They are full of historic black and white photos and they have been produced in memory of Roy and Nanda Cooper of Checkley.

The cost is £7 or £8.50 to include postage and packing and all proceeds are in favour of Checkley Church.
