Wrexham’s flock of celebratory ‘Tour of Britain’ sheep has expanded today with two new woolly faces – and the return of a familiar favourite.

Doris, the fibreglass sheep was reinstalled at her home at St Giles this morning following an incident on Bank Holiday Sunday, which resulted in two trying to steal her. Two men have since been bailed.

Along with Blessing and Wheely Good Sheep, Doris is now joined by Jack Mary Ann and Champion, the latest addition to Wrexham’s fibreglass flock.

The woolly favourites have been installed at St Giles to celebrate the Aviva Tour of Britain cycle race finish in Wrexham Town Centre on Sunday 6th September 2015. The new residents of the town have decided to get the best viewpoint on St Giles Way and will be grazing here for the next few months.

There is also the opportunity for local stakeholders to sponsor / decorate a sheep for the town centre, which after its display ends in the town centre, will be yours to keep.

More information on how you can get involved and adopt your own fibreglass sheep please contact Isobel.Garner@wrexham.gov.uk or joe.bickerton@wrexham.gov.uk.
