If you are looking for a fun and slightly wooly idea for a club meeting, then get your creative juices flowing and join the Flock!
Flock is a public art project that absolutely anyone can get involved with, including YFC members and clubs. It aims to raise awareness and understanding of the sheep farming and wool industries by displaying 5000 pom-pom sheep in a huge exhibition in April 2012.
Your club can make their very own wooly critters and send them to be part of the flock. Visit www.jointheflock.co.uk
to get more info and download your sheep making kit.
