Over the years we have accumulated quite a selection of cuddly or squishy venue giveaways.  You know the thing:  Teddy bears in bath robes or golfing gear, stress cows, horses and our own little favourite, Georgie The Pig.  Despite decorating our desks with them and sharing with the very grateful little people in our lives, there were still quite a few lurking in drawers and at the back of the stationery cupboard.

Then we heard that during these days of lockdown, households in Kingston were being encouraged to display teddies and toys in windows and doorways to bring a smile to the faces of children out with parents on their daily walk.  We have been happy and well equipped to oblige with daily changing displays.  And it is not just the passing children who are smiling.
