A cheeky calendar, showcasing over 24 people from businesses in a village has gone on sale today.
Any additional money raised will go towards a new toilet block at Iwade church.
Amanda Cooper and Kate Hennessy, of Kate Hennessy Photography, and David and Jemma Rannard, of Click:Create Photography & Design, pictured above, are representing May.
The other businesses involved are Iwade Garage, The Mews Brewhouse, Body Care Hair and Beauty, K Fitness, Andrea School of Art and Sheppey’s Brambledown Farm Shop.
Also stripping off are dog groomer Rachel Rook, Aden Woodcock of Woodcock and Sons Properties and Maintenence, Rob Amat of ADT Alarms, event firefighters Steve Jordan and Dave Neale of RFR Events and gardener Steve Allart.
Speaking about the calendar before it went on sale, Laura Cheeseman, who came up with the idea, said she couldn’t believe how quickly it had all come together.
“I’m quite impressed with myself,” she joked. “Everyone kept saying I wouldn’t be able to turn it around before Christmas, so that was my aim.”
“I feel like I’m in a bit of a dream world at the moment, but I’m so pleased and so excited for everyone to see the calendars now. If it does really well I’ll definitely do a bigger one next year and, hopefully, make it an annual thing.”
Beautician Mrs Cheeseman, who owns Laura Cheeseman Advanced Beauty and works part-time for estate agents Quealy and Co, has also been papped for the calendar.
The animal-lover said: "I've got two horses in the village that everyone knows, so I had a photo with one of them, he's called Dude, in a field in Iwade.
"How could I expect everyone else to bare all and not do it myself?".
