FRIENDS of Newport Transporter Bridge have produced a 2017 calendar following the success of this year's calendar.

David Hando, the group's secretary, said: "Last Christmas, the calendar was sent all over the world.

"It shows our splendid bridge in all its moods with excellent photographs.

"People visit from all over the world and the visitors' book indicates the amazement and admiration for our magnificent bridge.

"Some come because they have seen it on Michael Portillo's Great Railway Journeys or Fiona Bruce's Antique Road Show."

The calendar - which costs £4.50, £5.50 by post - is available at the Visitor Centre, Maindee Library Plus and by ringing Mr Hando on 07802 487 042.

Despite the bridge itself being closed until Easter, the bridge's visitors centre will remain open seven days a week 10am to 4pm until the end of November.

Anyone who can spare half a day a week volunteering is asked to contact Mr Hando on the number above.
