Children flocked to this years week-long Nativity Sheep Trail in Royston.

The event, organised by Margaret McCormack of Ignite Community Ministries, saw 20 shops name a sheep soft toy and hide it somewhere in their store or in the window.

Families then went along to discover where the sheep were hiding.

The celebration for the Sheep Trail Sunday at the Coombes Centre in Burns Road where families made sheep cakes and cards and a Christingle orange.

They also watched a short DVD, Red Boots for Christmas, which was said to be enjoyed by everyone, and there was a Christmas tea put on too.

Margaret was pleased to report it was a big success. “So many people have even asked for this lovely Christmas search to be a part of the Christmas festivities again next year,” she said.
