Can you give Elvis (and some sheep) a new home?

* Elvis and the sheep are looking for a new forever home.

Elvis may have left the (outside of) the building on Abbey Road but he's still available for someone to take home with them.

A lifelike recreation of the King of Rock 'n' Roll starred as one of the Three Kings of nativity fame in the Christmas tableau at the gateway of Tan Y Ddol and attracted a huge following of fans.

It's creators, who come up with a similar ingenious display each festive season, have just taken down Elvis, along with a band of realistic-looking shepherds who had been been watching their flock by night, at the end of their smash-hit run.

But they're now hoping find the immaculately-attired Mr Presley and the six sheep - named EweAnn, Mary, Shaun, Ramsay, Baabara and EweJean -   some appreciative new homes in exchange for a contribution to a good cause.

A spokesperson for the Tan Y Dol team said: "We're stripping down the tableaux, and it occurred to me that we might be missing a trick.

"I thought it might be worth offering people the opportunity to have one of the figures in exchange for a donation to Tenovus. 

"Unfortunately we'd already stripped down all the others before the idea dawned on me - only Elvis and the sheep are left - but fortunately they're the ones I think people would be more likely to be interested in."

* If you're interested in adopting Elvis or the sheep just pop into the Tenovus charity shop in Castle Street, Llangollen and make a donation.
