CAROL and Clover will put the sheep into Sheep Street on Saturday when they take part in The Great Christmas Cut-Out at the Baptist Church.

The pair will be kept in order by sheep dog Claus as people gather for the service at 10am.

Farmer Muriel Naughton from Bishops Cannings, who is also a member of the church's flock, said: "The sheep are part of the displays that tell the Christmas nativity, the other parts of the story are told using life-size silhouettes – look out for the 6ft angels over the doors and the camel tethered outside.

"There are stars aplenty, Christmas lights and a warm welcome. The event is entirely free."

"A busy morning is planned with craft activities for all ages, refreshments to enjoy and several children’s community music groups performing. Everyone visiting the Church will be encouraged to contribute to a giant community collage.

"A stunning stained-glass style picture of the stable scene in Bethlehem has been made by members of the congregation out of last year’s Christmas cards. Titled Putting Sheep Street In The Picture.

"Hundreds of little card houses have been sent out to the residents of Sheep Street and they have been invited to add them to the giant collage."
