Hello  I am Bernie the Sheep

Hi my name is Bernie and I am a sheep that lives in the hills and valleys of South Wales. I love my family and friends and care about my home – I don’t want to see them killed and destroyed which is why I want to stop grass and mountain fires.

In the lead up the Easter Holiday period I will be hitting the streets of South Wales and visiting primary schools with my BARR – iliant new road show. I hope to meet EWE during one of my visits but if we don’t get chance to meet you can still help me to try and stop these grass and mountain fires by signing up to become a ‘Grass Roots Ambassador’. By becoming a ‘Grass Roots Ambassador’ you are making a promise that you will not start any grass fires on purpose.
