The fabulous calendar girls of Whimple.

When it came time for Cathy Bartlett-Horwood to drop her dressing gown to the floor and stand naked in her village hall in front of her friends, she was nervous. The year-old has had a complicated relationship with her weight for many years.
She was so nervous, in fact, that she was physically sick beforehand. This calendar is more than a photographic paean to the female form.
Whimple is comprised of winding lanes dotted with thatch-roofed whitewashed cottages with the occasional farm thrown in for good measure. But, beyond the chocolate box prettiness of the village, its 1, inhabitants have been working hard to acknowledge and embrace the beauty of their own bodies.
It's by no means been an overnight flick-of-a-switch process for many of the people involved. Gill Wilson— an eating disorders therapist—is the woman behind the movement. It all started in Januarywhen Gill organised screenings of a documentary in the village called Embrace.
The film—created by Australian activist Taryn Brumfitt after a successful Kickstarter campaign—explores the issue of "body loathing" and aims to inspire people to change the way they think and feel about their bodies.
The research found that more than one-third of UK girls are unhappy with the way they look, a 30 percent rise over five years.
One of which was a calendar. But, the idea of the calendar presented a solution to the licence issue—the proceeds raised by the Wonders of Whimple could pay for licences. Word of the calendar spread through the village, and slowly but surely people came forward and signed up to take part in it.
This was exactly how Bartlett-Horwood came to be involved in the calendar. Her bravery—and that of the women who took part in the calendar—has not gone unnoticed in the village.
Suzanne Rothwell, 72, decided to take part in the calendar for reasons close to her heart. How sad is that?
