Did you you find an angel on Saturday morning?

Local people were astounded to discover that 350+ angels had landed in Crowthorne with a message to “take me home”.

The Village facebook site was transformed by stories of people finding angels “It made my day”, said one surprised trader.

Children joined in too “By request of my little person we had to stop at each and everyone and read the messages.”

The flight of angels was co-ordinated by the churches in Crowthorne / Finchampstead as part of their Christmas Message to the Village. Later in the morning, a band and singers from all the churches sang carols for shoppers in the High Street.

Angels play a big part in the Christmas story – delivering messages to Mary the mother of Jesus and the shepherds outside Bethlehem where Jesus was born.

Crowthorne Angels delivered messages including “joy to the world” , “life is for living” and “peace on earth”.

This Christmas will you stop and listen to the message of the angels?
