Also, Derbyshire mum Lisa Foster died from bowel cancer this year but has made sure she'll be a presence in every significant moment of family life. Plus a re-imagining of the nativity story with poet Toby Campion taking the role of the innkeeper, and meet the Nottingham woman who has created her own version with ex-display mannequins.
