Memory on a Star

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.

Thanks to everyone who purchased stars this year. They were all sold very quickly and will be lit on Sunday 29th November at approximately 4.45pm. Because of social distancing we are asking that people do not congregate in the church yard for this, but could watch from the street.

Many Thanks.

Kate, Jane, Donna, Joanna and Sue.
