The calendar contains iconic scenes from films such as Star Wars, White Christmas, and the Wizard of Oz. The idea was brought to life in less than six weeks by a group of residents.
Village Activities Facilitator Lauren McMillan said: "The photoshoot day was great fun with people running around dressed as Harry Potter, The Tin Man and Gangsters."
Proceeds from the calendar will be used by the Charity to support activities that will benefit residents living at the retirement village.
