DALSTON’S SEASONAL silver angels will fly again. Having been told last year to flock off from St Mark’s, at the corner of Colvestone Crescent and St Mark’s Rise, they will be posted on Christmas Eve to the railings of St Mary’s in Stoke Newington.
Jean Field, pictured, of Hackney, who with her husband David, makes the angels from aluminium foil and blue plastic, told Loving Dalston: “We are pleased to be given the chance to decorate the railings of St Mary’s, although the line of the railings is curved and not as suitable as those at St Mark’s.”
The straightness of the line of the E8 railings for 20 years gave a pleasing telephoto effect to viewing of the angels. The Rev Josh Zvimba, vicar of St Mark’s, banned the religious symbols because he said they became litter for passing vandals.
