Bearsden Cross Church has organised a “Messy Nativity Sheep Trail” for children to hunt down cuddly lost sheep in the local shops around Bearsden Cross.
The sheep trail will commence on Monday 1st December and finish on Saturday 13th December 2014 and local children will be encouraged to look at all of the shop windows around the Cross to find and identify the sheep as well as the name of the shop.
Entry forms will be collected at special post boxes at the schools and at the church and prizes will be awarded for winning entries, including some of the sheep!
A spokesperson for the organisers said: “Over 30 shops so far have agreed to look after the lost sheep and we envisage our “Messy Nativity Sheep Trail” will be an enjoyable event for both the children and their parents who accompany them around the Cross.
“We also hope that the local shops will benefit financially from the increased activity that our event will generate.”
If you are around Bearsden Cross have a look in the windows and see how many sheep you can spot!
