Shaun the sheep was sighted paying a visit to Westdene library where he met a crowd of adoring fans. The chance encounter occurred just as school had finished, word had been leaked that the woolly wonder was in the near vicinity and people had gathered early in anticipation of being able to meet and maybe even get a hug from the sheep himself.
In honour of the occasion the children made pictures of Shaun to show the star. Shaun was so impressed, that he decided prizes should be awarded to those with the most artistic flair. The winner received tickets for them and their family to see Shaun in his show at the Theatre Royal, while the runner’s-up got to take home DVD’s of some of Shaun best television adventures or posters of the pin-up.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable occasion for all involved, with plenty of smiles all round.
