AN OTLEY church has renewed its appeal for help with finding 32 lost sheep.

The toy animals, which Otley Methodist Church needs for its Christingle service, are believed to be hiding in shop windows around town.

Although a few have been found the church's Ministers, Reverend Rick Ormrod and Reverend Lesley Taylor, say they are becoming increasingly concerned about the remainder.

Rev Ormrod said: "They have been seen in some shop windows but appear to be having trouble finding their way back to church.

"We need them for our 4pm Christingle Service on Christmas Eve - please help us to find them!"

Rev Taylor, the Superintendent Minister for the Wharfedale and Aireborough Circuit, added: "You might not be able to find them all, but please could you get a sheet from Otley Library and find as many as you can for us?

"You can put your sheet in the box in the back foyer at Otley Methodist Church."

The Otley Methodist Church Sheep Trail runs until Thursday, December 22.
