Denis Blandford Christmas Cards are selling out all over Windsor… he’d be so chuffed!
I called into Christ Church URC yesterday, looking for Crowd Patch projects to get my teeth into and they were having a Christmas card sale… where 70% goes to the named charity… and many charities were represented. I spoke to Heather, who I met around the same time 15 years ago, her & my wife shared a ward when our sons were born… she said they had some lovely Christmas scenes of Windsor Castle with children playing outside but they’d all sold out… I said, what by Denis Blandford and she said “Why yes, the very same, they are so popular!”
I popped up to the Museum at The Guildhall where Denis presented the picture above to HRH Prince Philip to commemorate our MG Rally & his 90th birthday… the Duke is an honoury member of our Windsor & Eton Rotary Club which has organised a few car rallies over the years… and bought their last packet 😉
BUT IT’S OK… you can buy the very same card as a Christmas Advent Calendar with over 100 prizes! The cost is just £5 with all the money going to good causes via Windsor & Eton Rotary Club… Buy yours from Metro Bank, Laithwaites and shortly Snappy Snaps… thank you.
We’d done some e-cards together… this one for Parkinsons… they loved it…
I hosted an event which we broadcast online in real time from The Firestation theatre in Windsor at which he sketched these head shots of those that gave the presentations and I used for a year or so as my head shot across my channels…
Good old Denis, he produced the I Love Windsor logo and would have been all over Crowd Patch with me, creating humorous cartoons to bring the stories to life…
Sadly missed by everyone who knew him…
Make sure when the church & the museum get fresh stocks in you’re the first to buy them… mixing traditional with family fun… brilliant 😉 And don’t forget to buy your calendar!

Fantastic! A bit late to the party here but great work Jon!
