Join the sheep trail through the streets of Chobham

Written by

THE SHEEP TRAIL is a new Christmas "event" this year. At the beginning of December, small knitted sheep will start appearing in shop windows and other places around the village.

Pick up a form from shops in the High Street, Windsor Road and Chertsey Road, find the names of all the sheep and return the form to the box at St Lawrence Church porch by December 15th.

The first 10 correct entries out of the box win a prize.

THE "KNITIVITY" is also new this year, thanks to the busy team of knitters. They have created a nativity set to travel around the village, adopting a Mexican custom that is becoming popular in the UK.

The nativity will start its travels after the Christingle on December 2, visiting schools and 20 homes, travelling from place to place each evening. A short prayer is said at each house, led by the family who hosted the "Knitivity" the night before.

If you would like to welcome the "Knitivity" to your home, please call Gill Balister on 01276 858224.

Information about Christmas services and events and the Christingle are all on the Chobham Church website.
