Merry Christmas from Sign Language

It has been a busy year once again and we almost can’t believe it is Christmas! Luckily we’ve been able to get into the festive spirit with a few particularly wonderful Christmas jobs.

Many people who live near Coggeshall and Earls Colne will know Olivers Plants, located on Coggeshall Road. They had an incredible Christmas Tree Maze and Treasure Trail, open from 1st to 9th December. This was a clever way of organising their Christmas trees, and a brilliant attraction for families.

We produced a foamex board for them, to add to the fun, allowing children to pose as elves, and their parents could visualise themselves as Father Christmas.

While the maze has now gone, head to Oliver’s if you need any last minute gifts or if you are thinking about your sprint planting. They have an incredible range and fantastic customer service, always ready to give help and advice.

Every year there is a great amount of anticipation to see the John Lewis or M&S Christmas advert, which signals the start of the run-up to Christmas. However, we have our own rival in Coggeshall – Little White Box. Last year they had a stunning window display, featuring a carousel horse and drum appearing to escape through the window. This drew people to the village and made a huge number of children very excited every time they would pass it.

We knew this year they would be up to the challenge of repeating their success and we were delighted to help out. The team at Little White Box produced a window display that told a story, dedicated to George Ellison, who was the last soldier to be killed in action during WW1, and his wife Hannah. It featured snow Hannah having broken out of the shop and returned with a gift to George, who remained in the display. We helped tell this heartwarming tale with our sign underneath the window, explaining “Some people are worth melting for”. You can see the full video on Little White Box’s Facebook page.

This is why we love what we do – the variety and creativity of some of our clients is incredible and we are so thankful for everyone we work with. We can’t wait to see what happens next year and the exciting projects we will get to work on.


Merry Christmas and have a fantastic New Year!
