Memory on a Star 2020
Memory on a Star returns this year, with the stars being lit in memory of loved ones over the Christmas period.
For those new to the village, or hearing about us for the first time, for the last 3 years, 4 large stars have been placed on the St Peters Church tower, and shine out over Coggeshall during Christmas and New Year.
Since 2016, over £2,600 has been raised with the stars being purchased by our local community in memory of their loved ones, with the monies raised going to benefit local charities including The Coggeshall Cancer Fund, Coggeshall Youth Group and Coggeshall in Bloom. This year we are pleased to support The Coggeshall Young singers and The Coggeshall Contact Group for the Elderly.
