One of the few clues to who might be responsible for the spruce up is a hand written sign on the wall. The message reads:

This bus stop has been decorated using only gifted or recycled materials as a present to the community. We hope it makes you smile. It was one answer to the question about what we could do in response to these crazy times. And I guess it gently poses the question... what could you do?

The note is signed by "Bus stop friends" and dated June 2019.
