So, what happened to the sheep?

Do ewe remember these?IMG_0355

Back in December Di B, Helen and I helped out our neighbouring parish by knitting seven googly-eyed sheep for their Christmas outreach.


Almost as much fun as the knitting was the photographic session we had before popping our sheep in a bag and delivering them to our friend Jane.


We met up with Jane over coffee a few weeks ago, and she reported that these fat little fellows were a great hit. Where did they end up?


Bo Peep looks as if she’s enjoyed a little too much Christmas cheer!

Around a dozen cafes and shops in the neighbourhood around St John’s agreed to display a sheep for the 10 days leading up to Christmas Eve.

   IMG_2160They gave their sheep names, and children did the rounds visiting the shops on the Messy Christmas Sheep Trail and compiling a list of names that they handed in at the church for some prizes. IMG_2158


Finally, the sheep were all gathered in and took pride of place at the children’s Christmas Eve service.


They were a great link between St John’s and the community as adults and children alike took ownership of “their” sheep!
