Have your say

Only a few days remain for people to sign up to the “Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys” campaign.

Any businesses, groups or individuals in the North York Moors or Howardian Hills wanting to take part have until next Tuesday to register their sheep before the fun kicks off on June 20.

Visitors will be asked to spot at least three “lost sheep” and report their sightings on a website where they will then be entered into a prize draw which could earn them anything from free days out at local attractions, through to accommodation and a transparent pink glass bowl from Gillies Jones Glass.

One of the latest recruits is Fylingdales Primary School, whose pupils have been busy making pompom sheep which will be displayed in local shop windows and at local campsites.

More than 100 people and organisations have now signed up to display a pink sheep during the three month campaign.

Catriona McLees, Head of Tourism and Promotion at the North York Moors National Park Authority, said: “From knitted creations to an earring made for a local jeweller, the ideas for pink sheep have been coming thick and fast. It promises to be a really exciting campaign offering people an added incentive to return again and again to the area and to discover new places.” Visit
