The Angels of St Helens - A Christmas Celebration

For the second year running the village of St Helens on the Isle of Wight is celebrating Christmas by hosting angels. The community has come together  to create angels as a means of raising money for local charities. So, without further procrastination meet the angels of St Helens.

  1. What a lovely idea. And how creative the results. Some of these are just lovely. All of them are charming. Thanks for the share.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      Charming is the word! And so creative. I love how imaginative people have been in creating their angels. Some of the photos didn't come out well so I'll go back in daylight to capture those shrouded in darkness.

    1. It's a great idea, isn't it?
      We were here last year and seeing the angels was magical. So glad they decided to do it again.
