How to add Windows Calendar to Windows 7

I was annoyed to find after upgrading to 7 that the calendar from Vista no longer existed. I used this a lot and relied on it to aid my geriatric memory.
I searched about but could find no info as to how this could be done in Windows 7 so that reminders still worked.
Therefore I have worked it out myself and the instructions can be found here.
