A group of anonymous artists has made a series of Coronation post box toppers to mark the upcoming event.

The artists, who operate around Bicester, have already placed a couple of toppers - featuring King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla - on post boxes at Tesco Superstore, in Lakeview Drive, and in Upper Heyford.

The group has plans to decorate more post boxes, at Mallards Way, Bicester Library and in Launton.

One of the artists said: “We all wanted to mark the coronation in our own special way.

“As we meet in a small group, it is also a social event as some of us are now on our own.

“We are aware that our toppers give people a lot of joy, and we have noticed people stopping to take photos. It’s just an act of kindness.

“We are also decorating Garth Park on Thursday, April 27 at 10am.”
