VIDEO: Stars dedicated to loved ones go on display

More than 3,500 stars – dedicated to family, friends, memories, and even pets – from across the county have gone on display today (Friday) as part of a BBC project.

BBC Radio Lincolnshire has organised the Christmas Knitivity in partnership with St Botolph’s Church, in Boston, and members of the station have joined those from the parish and the town’s Oldrids store today to decorate more than 30 trees with the stars.

The decorations have been sent in from all over the county, including messages from each of the Red Arrows, and organisers say each star and message is ‘as unique as each person’.

The Knitivity project will culminate in the station’s annual Christmas carol concert, hosted this year by the Stump, on Saturday evening, which will also be aired live on Christmas Day.

In the video above organiser Suzy Lawson and Rev Alyson Buxton talk about the massive response they have recieved to the event.

The trees and stars will be on display in the church until January for anyone wishing to see them.
