Hundreds of knitted woollen candles were distributed across Highbridge as part of a church’s Christingle celebrations.
The team at St John’s Church created 400 woollen candles and left them on street corners, public walls and fences to ‘spread a little festive spirit’ and promote its Christmas festivities and fair, pictured here.
St John’s vicar Rev Sharon Crossman also dressed up as a giant Christingle candle when she ran in Saturday’s Parkrun at Apex Park.
Organisers included Liz Davies, Reverend Dan Crouch and Jackie Cooper, who said the events had been warmly welcomed.

“The woollen candles can be used as Christmas tree decorations so we have received plenty of positive feedback,” Liz told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

“We created angels last year and also got lots of kind comments too.”
