Calendar girls

A Hokitika church group is turning heads with the launch of a new fundraising calendar.
All Saints Church parishioners have put a spin on the traditional images of steeples and stained glass, in favour of their own individual ‘pin-up’ shots.
“It is a bit of a send up of ‘girly’ calendars,” Reverend Vivien Harber says.
“Every church calendar all around the world is the same. So this is certainly something a bit different.”
The 2014 calendar models, ranging in age from 59 to 97 years, are depicted in their favourite past-times — from whitebaiting to horse riding, baking and floral arranging — in celebration of both the members, and older women in general. The calendars will go on sale today outside Hokitika New World.
