A huge 'Thank you' to all the knitters who contributed to the 3,000 angels which were 'showered' over Orpington on Monday 18th December by members of Churches Together in Orpington. The members of St Johns knitted just under 400 angels and helped to 'shower' them.
It was wonderful that so many people joined in producing the angels and it was amazing to see the variety of wools and the rainbow of colours used, would have left Joseph's coat standing!
There has been some feed back from people who found an angel and they were delighted, not just with the angels but also with the attached messages.
The angels have been so well received that I think we may well be asked to contribute to next years 'showering' so any members with idle moments to fill through the year may like to make an early start on next Christmas's angels. Patterns and any other information about the angels are available from me.
