Lost sheep

19 December 2014

TWELVE sheep have managed to lose themselves somewhere in the shops of Wakefield, now in the diocese of West Yorkshire & the Dales. Children are being asked to help find them, and bring them back to the cathedral in time for Christmas.

The scheme was launched by the Dean, the Very Revd Jonathan Greener, and the Mayor of Wakefield, Councillor Sanda Pickin (right); and there is a leaflet to help on the Messy Cathedral Nativity Sheep Trail, on which - when anyone finds a knitted sheep - he or she can write its name and post it in the cathedral prize-draw box. Prizes include a family ticket to Canon Hall Farm this Christmas.
