A 15 angel mobile has been raised to the roof of Saint Swithun's Church in Woodbury to celebrate Christmas.

The festive assembly, nine foot high by six foot wide, can be seen in the church's nave, each angel silhouette moving slowly and catching light.

The mobile also reflects moving images along the walls of the church, adding an element of playfulness to the seasonal decorations.

These angels were crafted in Budleigh Salterton Community Workshop by a member of St Swithun's congregation.

Using a scroll saw section for precision, the angels were cut from recycled Perspex from a stock of donated materials.

According to the congregation member, the idea of using translucent material stems from having the donated recyclables.

For hanging, the angels are attached to nearly invisible wires from the Exmouth fishing tackle shop, intended for pike or conger eel fishing.

The mobile's structure consists of recovered fishing rods bought over the summer from the local recycling centre.

Hoisting ropes, fitted 18 foot above the floor, were installed with help from other congregation members and even more fishing rods.

The mobile was then balanced by a retired accountant.

The congregation thoroughly appreciated the efforts that contributed to creating this unique project.

The 15 glowing angels will remain hung throughout December, inviting everyone to come to St Swithun's Woodbury and visit.

In further celebration of Christmas, St Swithun's Church will hold a Christmas concert in aid of Hospicecare on December 9 at 7pm and a Carol service on December 15 at 6.30pm.
