Christmas card captures Marlborough – and Wiltshire’s new Air Ambulance – in all their glory
Christmas in Marlborough was designed by architectural illustrator Colin Palmer, well known for capturing every shopfront in Marlborough High Street in pen and ink in stunning architectural detail.
“It was an honour to produce the design and I feel very privileged that my design was chosen by Wiltshire Air Ambulance,” said Colin.
“I know the great work they do. The brief for the design was to have a well known Wiltshire landscape in snow, with a Christmas tree and the helicopter flying overhead.
“It took me a little while to choose the best view point, I spent quite a bit of time taking pictures at different times of the day.
“I wanted the town hall to be in the design because it is a building that people know.”
Claire Kelly of Wiltshire Air Ambulance said: “We’d like to thank Colin Palmer for his wonderful design and we are delighted that it is our bespoke Christmas card this year.
“Over the years our bespoke Christmas cards have featured our helicopter flying over iconic Wiltshire landmarks and have proved to be very popular.
“We think that Colin’s design of Marlborough High Street will be just as successful.”
The cards will be available from St Peter’s Church in Marlborough, and Great Bedwyn Post Office. For a full list of stockists, log on to www.wiltshireairambulance.co.uk/get-involved/buy-our-christmas-cards
