Coming Soon

It is amazing that advent – the time of waiting – is almost upon us.

Check back here for updates and progress as our Knitted characters travel around Hinckley visiting different places before eventually arriving at St Mary’s Church on Christmas Eve (although we suspect the Wise Men, since they have no camel, may be a bit later arriving!)
