Weybourne Church seeks Christmas donkeys

All Saints Church in Weybourne is looking for one or more donkeys for its planned Christmas Eve nativity service.

An appeal has gone out to donkey owners in the county to see if anyone would be willing to lend their animals for the church's nativity service. The church feels that using live donkeys will help to bring the event to life.  It is understood that donkeys are happier travelling in pairs, so the church would be very happy to accommodate one or two reasonably well behaved animals.

Sarah Glew, group administrator at the Weybourne Group of Parishes, said: "As you know it's been quite a tough few months for everyone and we want to bring a real sense of community back to the area. We really want to bring our nativity service to life, but we have hit a bump in the road - we seem to have tried everywhere but we can find no donkeys."
 
Anyone able to help is asked to email Ms Glew at weybournechurch@gmail.com.
