WREXHAM SHEEP TRAIL EXTENDED FOR 2018!

More wooly friends have landed in new locations across the County Borough this spring...

Since 2016, Wrexham County has had a number of woolly residents, dotted about for locals and visitors to find & follow as part of the Wrexham Sheep trail. Exciting news for the flock is that the original 23 sheep have now been joined by an additional 11.

More businesses from across the County Borough have partnered with the This Is Wrexham Tourism Partnership and Wrexham County Borough Council to sponsor and design their own sheep model which have become part of a now 34-strong Wrexham Sheep family.  Local artist Ellie Ashby has been responsible for helping produce the finished sheep, with creative input from all businesses and organisations.

Added to the familiar faces such as Doris from Borras, Angelina, Baali and Lady Baa Baa, a bigger trail has been established to continue to encourage people to visit the sheep in their homes.

Maps are available to download on the Tourism Partnership’s website at www.thisiswrexham.co.uk/wrexhamsheep, or can be collected from Wrexham Tourist Information Centre, or many of the locations on the trail.

Visitors are encouraged to take photos of themselves with the sheep, and post them on social media using the hashtag #wrexhamsheep. The sheep also have their own Twitter account @wrexhamsheep
