The Invercargill City Council calendar will be delivered to 25,000 households from Invercargill to Bluff in the next two weeks.

The 2013 calendar will feature a series of bird photographs taken throughout Southland by former Southland Times chief photographer Barry Harcourt.

Council communications manager Eirwen Harris said council staff and their families began delivering the calendars yesterday.

Mr Harcourt's photos were "absolutely stunning", she said.

This is the third year the calendars have been issued, with information and reminders about council services, programmes and important dates.

They also contain a full set of timetables for the city's new bus service, Bus Smart, which will be launched next week.

Key phone numbers, information about holiday programmes, recycling and funding applications as well as special events run by the council have also been included.

Ms Harris said people wanting extra copies of the calendar wouldn't have to pay for them.

They would be available from the help desk in the Civic Administration Building in Esk St and from the Bluff Service Centre from Monday.

If people had not received a calendar by December 9, they could contact the council.
