There are lots of sheep in Stewarton’s shops & businesses. How many can you find?
One of the shepherds wants to go and see baby Jesus, but he can’t find all his sheep! He knows that he went into Stewarton shops & businesses - will you help him find his missing sheep? Look out for the Sheep Trail sign in windows. When you find a sheep you can write the name of the sheep and the name of the shop you find it in!

Boys' Brigade companies from across Scotland are celebrating by hosting a Big Brunch, We have decided to celebrate this with a breakfast in John Knox Hall any time from 9am to 12 Noon.
There will be a selection of buffet type breakfast foods, tea/coffee and a hot roll/. We are not proposing a fixed charge, but are suggesting a donation.
The money raised will be split and go to the boys activities and also in partnership with St John’s we are fundraising to provide a defibrillator for the town that can be accessed 24/7 for public use.
We feel this is an excellent opportunity for the boys to get involved in a Community Project which will be a major asset to the town.
Open to all and we hope to see boys, parents, friends and ex memebers - all welcome.
