This year I'm fortunate to be spending Christmas on the Isle of Wight.
Despite the awful winds and rain we went for a walk round the village and discovered a flock of Christmas angels. To raise money for the local nursery, businesses have erected angels (many life-sized -or should I say out-sized since no one knows how big angels are). So for your Christmas edification I bring you the angels of St Helens.
|This angel is made from milk cartons!|
|The angel outside the Vine Inn|
|The driftwood angel.|
OK, this next one is rather creepy - it put me in mind of a creature from Doctor Who, especially as it takes a while to be certain its not a real person but a model.
|Sporting real feather wings -sadly a little the worse for wear,|
after the stormy conditions.
And these happy fellows...
So there we are! A very happy Christmas to you all.
PS This fishing village was once a haven for smugglers and the inspiration behind 'Hope's Betrayal'.
