Amnesty offered to post box topper thieves

Sadly, one of the post box toppers made for Beeston In Bloom has disappeared from the box outside Old Lane Post Office, but investigators have identified that it was removed by a group of children.

The topper, representing Autumn, is one of four made by the knitting and crochet group at Beeston Community Hub. A lot of time went into making it and the group want to see it restored to its rightful position.

In a statement on Facebook, Susan Murray from the group said:

“We now know this topper was taken by a group of children aged about 10/11 years old. It was a childish prank rather than a malicious act. The children won’t realise the amount of work and love that went into creating the topper. The CCTV image of the children is very clear. If you have a child/grandchild around this age please will you see if they have hidden the topper somewhere. Please just leave it outside the post office on Old Lane no questions asked.”
