Wooden mice have been appearing inside The Stump, in Boston.

The handmade creations, measuring a few inches from nose to tail, have been spotted in a range of places, such as the choir stalls and on the organ.

Angie Kisby, fabric manager at The Stump, said: “It’s so exciting. People are so enjoying them.”

When opening the church on Monday morning last week, Angie found some mice in the altar area while lighting candles, and staff have now found 14.

Angie said: “They are all over the church. They are all different and handmade.”

So far nobody has come forward publicly to claim responsibility.

Angie wants whoever is placing the mice in the church to continue doing so.

She added: “Out staff, volunteers and visitors are so enjoying finding these delightful little mice.”

The Standard know who is behind these wooden mice, but they wish to remain anonymouse.

The source told The Standard that 24 wooden mice had been deposited at the Stump, leaving open the possibility some may remain.
