A 'TOY hunt' has been set up in the area to help keep children entertained during their lockdown walks.

Sharon Bushnell, 48, from Earley set up a teddy bear hunt back in April last year with her daughter, Hannah Brogden.

The idea saw people in the Earley, Lower Earley and Woodley area decorate their windows with bears to keep children interested in their daily walks.

Over time, there were more than 1040 bears decorating windows in the area.

People were able to use a map to locate the bears and share their photos on a Facebook group that had been set up for the community.

Now with the latest lockdown, Sharon asked members of the group if they wanted to do something similar again.

Sharon described them as a "little community" and members voted to do a toy hunt this time around.

Now, windows in the area are being decorated with toys (including teddy bears still) and there are 100 toys so far.

Pictures show windows decorated with Lego, tractors and teddies and people can search for the decorated houses using a map.

Sharon said she has "loved" arranging the bear and toy hunts.

She also gave a "massive thank you to everyone that has taken part because they have made it what it is".

She added: "It wouldn’t have happened without everybody getting involved."
