Hand-made Jubilee bunting has been ‘stolen’ from the finish line of a family trail less than 24 hours after it was installed.

An organiser is asking for the bunting to be returned to Rustic Café and a donation made to their fundraising page after it went missing between May 28 and 29.

The red, white and blue flags were knitted by members of the Hawkedon Primary School community as part of a walk designed for families to spot crafty creations in Earley. 

“It was handmade especially for the trail so it's really frustrating that this has been taken before many people could enjoy it,” said Kim Prior, Assistant Vice Chair of the Hawkedon Primary School Association.

“If you've suddenly had some new handmade bunting appear in your house this morning, perhaps you would consider returning it to Rustic Cafe, no questions asked.

“You might also want to consider making a donation to our fundraising page.”

Hawkedon Crafty Trail begins from a post box at the start of Hawkedon Way, near the school entrance, and ends at Maiden Place.

Along the way families will find all sorts of creations, some of which will be labelled with a letter and a number, which can be rearranged and emailed to chair@hpsa-earley.org.uk for the chance to win a prize.

Tag your photos on Twitter with the hashtag #hawkedoncraftytrail and tag @hawkedonassoc for another chance to win.

“A big thank you to all the secret crafters and we are looking forward to seeing all your pictures,” said Kim.

There is no charge to join in with the trail, but you can make a donation to support Hawkedon Primary School Association on their fundraising page.
