Kirkby Christmas Star – bringing the community together at Christmas 2020
We are working with the Kirkby Collaborative of Schools and Tower Hill and Shevington Together group to bring the Kirkby community together.
The idea is to encourage everyone in Kirkby to put up a Christmas symbol in their window with a Christmas message for the community.
It was agreed that a star should be the symbol that everyone uses, as this has diverse appeal and religious and non religious affiliations.
By putting up a star in the window the idea is that everyone is thinking of all other members of the Kirkby community at Christmas – and the star is the symbol we are using to demonstrate that togetherness and unity at this difficult Christmas time.
Your children will be making a star in school during the remainder of this month – and they will bring the star home on Tuesday 1st December so they can all be put on the window together on the 1st to shine a light throughout the Christmas month.
Members of the Kirkby community without school children can also create their own star. You may wish to share the message to embrace other members of the community and community groups.
