Residents are being invited to help make angels that will be hidden in and around Weymouth town centre, or given to people in need of some Christmas cheer.

The angels will be given a tag with a link to a Facebook page, which people can visit to post where the angel was found.

The project was launched by the Let’s Make It group, which has teamed up with St Nicholas and St Lawrence Primary School and St John’s Primary School to make some of the angels that will be hung in St Mary’s Church in the town centre.

Neil Biles, Community Chaplain of St Mary’s Church said:

“This is once again a wonderful project, working with the schools and our local community – peace should always be here – and the angels will be suspended in the church in December for all to view. Not only are the schools making us angels but they are once again helping to make some beautiful white doves that will be suspended in the church over Remembrance week.”

Sue Stephens from the Let`s Make It group said:

“I love coming to the workshops on a Wednesday at St Marys – My life is very chaotic and to come to the workshop where I can just concentrate on doing something for me is such a relief. I look forward to Wednesdays every week and I am sad when the sessions are over.”

Gill Taylor from the Let`s Make It group said:

“It is amazing how many tourists come into the church whilst the sessions are taking place, and want to join in. Last week some American tourists came in and made three angels each and wanted to take one back to the States, we are really putting Weymouth on the map and we are giving them lasting memories of Weymouth too!”

If you would like to join in, the craft group happens every Wednesday morning from 9.30am – 11.30pm at St Mary's Church Weymouth.

For more information about the sessions please or ring 01305 239306.
