Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys

Pink SheepVisiting the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast between 20 June and 20 September 2014? Then keep an eye out for our lost pink sheep! 

You can win prizes by helping us find them. From toy lambs to life size sheep, there are more than 200 of our favourite woolly animals made by local people, school children and businesses just waiting to be discovered.

Explore hidden corners, and take a second look at some familiar sights as you spot our sheep, all decked out in pink jerseys to reflect the National Park’s heather moorland. They'll be hiding on window sills, in gardens, on walls, in shops, cafés... 

You may see the odd actual real sheep with a pink fleece, but most of them are manmade. They are of all sizes and made out of a variety of materials, from tiny earrings (in a jewellery shop window) to soft toy versions, photographs and pictures, felted works of art, carved wood and larger than life-sized models – some are easy to find, while others are more hidden.

How can you win prizes?

Spot 3 different Lost Pink Sheep and tell us where you found them here to be entered into the prize draw. 

We've got over 150 great prizes for you to win, from short breaks and free entry to attractions to food hampers and beautiful artwork. 

You can enter as many times as you like between 20 June – 20 September, just spot 3 different sheep each time. So the more sheep you spot, the better your chances of winning. You could even win more than one prize! You have to admit, that's a baa-gain (sorry, we couldn't resist it).
