St Helens Village of Angels gets everyone involved

By Mal Butler Dec 8, 2023

St Helen’s became a Village of Angels again on Saturday, with adults and children making angels out of recycled material which were placed around the village and in the primary school.

Friends of St Helen’s Primary School organised the event, which first started 11 years ago, which also included wooden angels which were hung on the village Christmas tree. A map was produced to walk around the village to see all the angels.

During the day, there was a Christmas fayre in the community centre and one in the school followed by mulled wine and mince pies at the Vine Inn.

Then there were Christmas carols sung by The Goose Island Choir just before the Christmas tree light switch on by the St Helen’s Carnival Queens with local councillor, Jonathan Bacon, welcoming everyone.

Angel winners:

Children: 1 Jessica Morling, 2 Rowan Ferrier, 3 Seb Wade.

Adults: 1 ‘Last Minute Angel’, 2 ‘Honour’, 3 ‘Angels of Peace’.
