A brand-new calendar for 2021 is celebrating a “timeless town’s” vast history.

Produced by Reepham Community Press in association with the Reepham Archive, the Reepham Life calendar features 13 photographs capturing the town’s history over the past century.

Geoff Fisher, editor of Reepham Life, said: “This project has involved sifting through hundreds of old photographs and postcards supplied to the Reepham Archive by past and present residents or those with a connection to the town.

“A total of 12 pictures plus a cover image were chosen for this eighth annual calendar, most from the first half of the 20th century.

“Local photographer John Tym then went out to capture many of these scenes as they are today.”

The calendar costs £8 and can be purchased from Johnsons of Reepham, Robertson’s Family Butchers, Bircham Centre Charity Shop, Reepham Archive and St Mary’s Reepham.
