Special sheep trail launched in Honiton - can you round up all the sheep?
A ewe-nique challenge has been launched for shoppers in Honiton by St Paul’s Church.
A special sheep trail runs until December 22 and challenges shoppers to spot the sixteen knitted sheep, which are hidden in shop windows across the town.
All the sheep, which have been knitted by members of St Paul’s craft group, are named and shoppers are asked to match up the names with the correct shop by spotting them in the windows and filling in the trail leaflets.
Those who complete the trail can enter a prize draw - the winner will be picked at the Christmas Eve crib service on December 24, at 11am.
Rector of St Paul’s Church Sue Roberts said: “These sheep are not just cute and fluffy.
“They are going to help us follow the same path as the shepherds did on that first Christmas and remind us what is important about Christmas, even while we are out shopping.”
The theme of this year’s crib service is Catching hold of Christmas. A coffee morning will also be held between 10am and noon.
