It is rumoured that one of the Christmas shepherds has lost his sheep – they are understood to have bolted and made their way to the village shops in Alverstoke for a bit of Christmas shopping!  They need to be rounded up by 22nd December so that they can get back in time for the Crib Services on Christmas Eve.  If anyone sees them in all of the village shops please get their names by writing them on this leaflet. and returning it to St.Mary’s in time.  Thanks ever so much.  Andy
