Sheep rustling is alive and well in Newtown St Boswells.
Owner of the village’s Tweedside Gallery, owner Ian Oliver said: “I fixed a Art Trail sheep very similar to this one, with cable ties, to the railings opposite the Council HQ yesterday (Monday) morning, and by tea time it was gone. It was not doing any harm, it was in the same place as many banners have been over the last wee while.
“These sheep are owned by Crossing Borders http://crossing-borders.org.uk/ and have been an integral part of our promotion for about five years now, and I’d like to have it back, please. I did not even have a chance to take its picture!”
If anyone knows of the sign’s whereabouts, can they contact Ian at Tweedside Gallery, Tweedside Road, Newtown St Boswells or call 01835 823473.
