Julie Harding, freelancing for a national magazine, running a fea­ture on special nativity scenes in its festive issue, would like to hear as soon as possible from any readers whose pretty country parish church boasts a particularly beautiful nat­ivity scene every Christmas, may­­be with historically significant figures used.

She can be contacted by email at, and seeks contact details, the name of church con­cerned, and information about the nativity scene and why it is special.
