THE beauty and heritage threatened by proposals to expand Stansted Airport is the focus of a new fundraising calendar launched by the Stop Stansted Expansion group.

The 2004 edition is designed to replicate the success of last year's edition. Once again pictures of tranquil villages, delightful cottages and stunning country views are spread across its A3 colour pages which cover 13 months to January 2005 and feature more than 30 new photos.

Commenting on the importance of the calendar in reinforcing the value of what is under threat, Ken McDonald, who masterminded its productio,n said: "This calendar will evoke a strong and positive response in all those who believe that our heritage is something that we must protect for future generations.

"After all, once our heritage and rural tranquillity goes, it will be gone forever."
