Karen Carter, who also lives on Bowbridge Gardens, is hoping to thank the person behind the toppers.

She said: “Unfortunately we don’t know who creates them. There’s also a Facebook page called ‘Random acts of Crochet Kindness’ and I put a thank you on there as this person regularly updates our postbox - we had a lovely one for Baby Loss Awareness.

“A lot of the people remain anonymous - a bit like a Banksy of the crochet world. This person makes us smile and many others with their works of art. It brings smiles and lots of joy to us and people in the local village.
