Sheep trail is a hit at Boundary Mill

Winter woollies and fashionable fleeces were not the only sheep-related attractions on offer for customers flocking to Boundary Mill Stores in Colne during December.

A sheep trail was organised by staff and members of the Parish of the Good Shepherd from Monday, December 16th, to Sunday, December 22nd, which saw half a dozen woolly wonders positioned around the store’s home floor.

Customers were able to pick up an entry form at the front desk and fill it in with the hope of bleat-ing the competition to win the top prizes.

Heather Foggo, Trading Manager at Boundary Mill Stores, said everybody had enjoyed a baa-rilliant week.

She said: “I was approached by Ann Lang from The Parish of the Good Shepherd to see if we would be interested in working with them on a sheep trail on the run up to Christmas.

“The idea of the sheep trail was to raise awareness of the true meaning of Christmas.

The plan for the sheep now the trail has finished is to raffle them off to the staff and raise money for the store’s chosen charity, which this year is the Alzheimers Society.
