6. The Story

That very birthday night, on the hillside surrounding the town of Bethlehem, the local shepherds kept watch over their sheep. People didn’t think much of the Shepherds – they were young men doing one of the most poorly paid jobs.
They drew their cloaks around themselves to keep warm. It was just another night, looking after their sheep.

We don't have many shepherds in Hoddesdon. What do you think some of the hardest jobs to do today are?
