Marsden's new star for Palm Sunday but ...
QUÉ burro tan bonito!
Or "what a lovely donkey".
That's what they're all saying in Marsden at the moment.
But they also have a problem: Just how do you say "Whoa" to a donkey that speaks only Spanish?
It's a bizarre puzzle but one that is delighting Sue Pegg, minister at the village's United Church.
She said: "We have a Palm Sunday service at the church each year and we always have a donkey as an integral part of the service.
"Sadly George the donkey, who we had used for the past two years, died just before Christmas.
"But the farmer, Elvin Eastwood, got hold of another donkey called Molly from Spain, and we hope to use her in the service.
"But because she is from Spain, and the only Spanish word I know is `Adios', it has the potential to be a disaster when we hold the service on April 9.
"I just wanted to know if anyone knows the Spanish word for `Whoa so we can make her stop?"
Molly, who is settling in to life on the edge of the Marsden moors, will make her guest appearance at 10.30am on April 9.
She arrived in Britain from the warmth of Alicante, having undergone a tortuous transfer.
But she is now happy in her new home.
And for the good people taking part in the service, the Spanish for whoa is.....whoa.
But it may be easy to shout "Alto", which is Spanish for stop.
