A model Christmas with London Colney man’s Nativity scene

A NATIVITY scene which took several months to construct has gone on display in a porch at a London Colney home.

Benito Mazzarella’s festive diorama features over 100 models, some of which are more than a century old and originate from all over the world.

The retired Italian, 71, built the scene with his family and said every year he changed it and arranged it in a different way.

He is raising money for the British Heart Foundation and welcomes people to come and visit the Christmassy creation.

The Nativity scene will be on display at 146 High Street until early January.
