Town ready to go 'baa-rmy' for sheep races

'SHEEPISH' shenanigans are on the cards for today as Moffat host the fifth annual Sheep Races.

The fun kicks off at 12 pm today with races starting at 1 pm.

Sarah Ottewell, of the organising team,  said: “It’s Difficult to believe it’s just five years ago that a crack team of Master Sheep Racers was tasked by Moffat Promotions Group to create a fun filled family event to beat all others.

“And this is what it’s all about, celebrating Moffat’s heritage and present day economy with one of the quirkiest events ever to arrive in Dumfries and Galloway.”

See next week’s Moffat News for pictures and a full report.
