We successfully rounded up all the sheep in 2020, with lots of help from all of you - you know who you are!

We now have just discovered that people have been leaving farm gates open and the sheep are again wandering off - we need your help!!!

Start by downloading a copy of the Lost Sheep 21 and designing it. you have until Friday 23 July 2021 to complete it and enter it. A suggested donation of £1 per sheep (all money going to keep the church open) would be baa-rilliant!
