OTLEY residents are being asked to help a church find its lost flock.

The Methodist Church’s annual ‘find the sheep’ trail will run from Sunday, December 1 to Sunday, December 22.

Townspeople are being invited to keep an eye open for the toy animals - some of which have been spotted in local shops. They can note their sightings in an Advent Sheep Trail leaflet and the returned flock will then star in the church’s Christingle Service.

Completed forms should be left in the competition box in the church’s Walkergate entrance. There will be a small prize for the one with the most correct answers. Leaflets will be available from the church, Otley Library and Otley Core.
