…….which you can see for yourself in St Botolph’s Church (aka the Stump) in Boston Lincolnshire until January. 3,000 Christmas tree stars and a nativity scene knitted by people across Lincolnshire, all dedicated to family, friends, memories and even pets.
Called Christmas Knitivity, this imaginative project was organised by BBC Radio Lincolnshire in partnership with St Botolph’s Church. Local radio staffers and Boston parishioners got together with Oldrids store to decorate more than 30 trees with these unusual emblems.
We dropped in last Friday and found the famous church buzzing with market day shoppers and photographers. And no wonder – this is truly an impressive sight. The stars are out until January and I strongly recommend a visit. This really is a tribute to community enterprise and local radio in a proud Lincolnshire town, sometimes denigrated in the national media.
