Cudworth Calendar Cover Photo: Storrs Mill Wood by Tom Curtis
In 2019 our local community group Cudworth Businesses & Community Together launched a competition to find 13 photos to feature on a Cudworth Calendar. A call out was put out to local residents for their pictures of our wonderful village. All the money raised would go towards future Cudworth community projects, meaning not only would people be able to buy a lovely calendar, they would also be helping the village too. What’s not to love?
There’s no doubt, Cudworth has some amazing sights and places to see: Cudworth Welfare Park, the Roman Bridge, the amazing Cudworth Stone Face at Storrs Wood, historic buildings that have stood the test of time and Carlton Marsh Nature Reserve, a nature lover’s delight. These are just a few of the landmarks and places of natural beauty hidden away in a little village nestled in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

The Calendars were sold by local volunteers, Wishes and AGE UK Barnsley, with every penny going towards Cudworth community projects. Over 250 calendars were sold and the feedback has been heart-warming. And the calendars themselves really are a work of art. The number and quality of photographs made it almost an impossible task to choose just 13 to feature. The judging panel made up of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds agonised over the difficult decision but ultimately put together a selection of photos showing what treasure Cudworth is. It was also great to see 3 photos by local school children taking proud of place in the calendar.
Well done Cudworth and thank you.
