A local craftswoman who randomly placed crochet birds around Crewkerne is pleased with the response from those who were lucky enough to find one. Alison Stewart of Daisy Grace Crochet decided to celebrate this year’s Random Act of Kindness Day, on February 17th, by leaving 15 of her handmade creations around the town, that were individually sealed in a plastic bag to keep them protected from the elements and included a friendly tweet -‘If you find this bird feel free to take it home. I hope it brings a smile to you or someone you know. Let me know if you find this on my Facebook page. A gift from Daisy Grace Crochet.’

Alison is known for her bespoke crochet hats and accessories for people of all ages and for pets and was a regular stall holder at the Crewkerne Makers Markers, which ran alongside the monthly Farmers’ Market pre-Covid. She dropped off the gifts where they could easily be found by walkers and shoppers, during her daily exercise around the town with her son. Alison said: “I wanted to do something nice for the town and timing it with the Random Act of Kindness Day seemed the ideal opportunity. I have had a lovely response from those who found one of my crochet birds and am considering doing it again with a rabbit theme, to coincide with the Easter holidays.”
