Have you found a knitted angel in Weymouth?
From Monday 6th December, Weymouth’s Christmas angels are back, thanks to a partnership between the community group Refresh Keep in Touch, St. Mary’s Church, and Weymouth Town Council.
Knitters have been working their needles off, creating more than 300 angels which have been hidden all around Weymouth. The aim is to bring a message of peace and hope to all who find them.
This initiative was started by a group of crafters and knitters from Weymouth who knit from their own homes and bring their creations to ‘Angel HQ’ at St Mary’s Church in Weymouth town centre.
Cllr Colin Huckle, Mayor of Weymouth, said: “It’s great to see the return of the knitted angels this year, helping to spread joy around the town while putting a smile on the faces of everyone who finds one.”
Neil Biles, Town Centre Chaplain at St Mary’s Church, added: “If you are blessed enough to find an angel this December, we hope that you will enjoy this and if you are able to share your find on Facebook at Weymouth Christmas Angels, please do.”
If you find one, take a photo, stating where it was found and share it in the Weymouth Christmas Angels group.
