Coming Up! Dates for Your Diary
Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys
What is it?
Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys is a fun challenge, for visitors to the North Yorkshire Moors. Take a new or longer look at this beautiful area. Whether you are local or from further afield, we want to encourage you to slow down, explore and stay longer. The pink jerseys relate to the heather on the Moors.
Lost Sheep is Simple:
Visitors are asked to spot at least three "lost sheep" around the North York Moors and coastal area, enter the details online with a chance to win a large selection of prizes. You can enter as many times as you like, so try hard to spot as many sheep as you can in different places.
The Lost Sheep will be on show from 20th June - 20th September 2014.
