Warm crocheted message left on Thatcham postbox.
A wonderfully warm crocheted message has been spotted in Thatcham this week.
A postbox on Derwent Road has been decorated with a crochet postbox topper which displays a swan and small bird resting with a message for passers-by.
The postbox message was spotted by one resident who posted their discovery on Facebook to say it made them smile.
The message reads: “I am a post box topper for all to enjoy. Please be gentle with me and do not remove me! If you like me, please post a picture on Facebook 'Joining Together' 'Acts of Kindness (West Berkshire)' 'Random Acts of Crochet Kindness'. Wishing you a wonderful day.”
Mother-of-two Izzy Denis was the creative brains behind the project and said she “just wanted to make people smile”.
Mrs Denis has been crocheting for four years but only began her postbox creation around two weeks ago.
She thought that it would be nice for children and parents to see it on the way to school.
She said: “I didn’t know what design to go for. My children used to go to the school there and their logo was a swan and a bird.”
Mrs Denis said that is “lovely” to see people enjoying her work because she has more ideas in the pipeline.
She added: “It is nice that it is reaching people in the way that it is intended.
"It is lovely, I do hope it lasts because if it does I have got other plans, so I will see.”
