TO CELEBRATE the first year of the South Downs National Park, Harvey’s Brewery has created a calendar showing iconic and diverse images of the park.

The 2012 calendar was launched at the Harvey’s shop in Midhurst at the heart of the National Park on Monday December 19.

Margaret Paren, chair of the South Downs National Park Authority, said: “For two centuries Harvey’s have brewed beer in the South Downs and by continuing to support our farmers by using local produce they are, in turn, helping farmers to maintain the spectacular landscape captured in this calendar.”

Miles Jenner, joint managing director of Harvey’s said: “There are obvious links between Harvey’s and the South Downs National Park. Wherever possible we source our raw materials locally, including malting barley grown on the Norfolk Estate in Arundel.”

He added that he was ‘proud’ to be part of the regions heritage and had ‘greatly enjoyed’ working with the National Park Authority.

The company has produced its 2012 calendar in association with the new South Downs National Park Authority.

The calendar highlights the diversity of the South Downs and illustrates the brewery’s role in promoting and enhancing it.
