HUNDREDS of hand-decorated stars designed by Harwich and Dovercourt schoolchildren will be bringing festive magic to the towns as the free Christmas community art trail returns this December.

Sponsored by Galloper Wind Farm, Harwich Stars was first launched two years ago.

The community initiative entails primary school children creating artworks to be displayed in shop fronts and hanging from the ceilings of businesses from Friday, December 1 to Tuesday, January 2, 2024.
