Appeal for return of animals stolen from nativity scene

Bournemouth Echo: CALL: A plywood donkey and sheep have been stolen from Ferndown United Church's Nativity scene CALL: A plywood donkey and sheep have been stolen from Ferndown United Church's Nativity scene

MEMBERS of a Ferndown church are appealing for the return of two festive creatures stolen over Christmas.

A donkey and sheep, both carved from plywood, were taken from Ferndown United Church’s nativity scene sometime in December.

Both animals had been stapled to hay bales to prevent them being blown away.

Church Deacon Mike Wakeham said: “The animals have been part of the nativity scene for more than a decade, and we’d very much like them returned.”

Parishioners discovered the donkey was missing on December 28, while the sheep disappeared in the days afterwards.

If you have any information about their whereabouts, contact the church on 01202 871440.

I'd keep a look out for a dodgy looking bloke wearing a long mac and wellies.
He might have one eye as well.

Just because you don't believe what right does that to give you to mock and scorn those that do?

You have an absolute right to your beliefs (or lack there of) without fear of ridicule and likewise those of differing beliefs are entitled to the same respect.

When it comes right down to it what harm are they doing you that you feel the need to deride them?
