Many thanks to all who knitted the little angels — I estimate that we had about 600 in total! All were different and many were quaint characters!
These were collected together ,sewn up and labelled with a greeting — many hands helped with this task. As I write the angels are being distributed around Alton- perhaps you have already seen some or been lucky enough to have one in your garden! We hope it does not rain on them before they are claimed!
It was good to have so many from the GAP churches taking part in this task and we pray that the gift of the angels helps people to think about the true meaning of Christmas and brings a little comfort to those who find it a difficult time of the year.
Peace and Joy be with you all!
