THIS boy’s brave teddy was preparing to try a daredevil stunt – zip-wiring from a church tower.
Youngsters queued up to give their teddy bears a thrill ride from a window of St Peter’s Church tower to the ground.
Among them was Oliver Roberts, seven from Wolvercote, who paid £1 for each of his teddies Brian and Sky Teddy to have a go.
He said: “They enjoyed it.”
His dad Manuel Berdoy said: “The teddies were going through a little window about six metres high.
“It was a marvellous bit of eccentricity. I’ve never seen anything like it, it was really good fun.”
The event was part St Peter’s Church fete, in First Turn, on Saturday.
Other attractions included Morris dancers, farm animals and a procession of children wearing masks.
