Postbox celebrates nature

A COLOURFUL knitted and crocheted post box topper has appeared in Emersons Green to celebrate nature in the area.

The decoration includes a fox, blue tit, hedgehog, toadstools and foxglove.

It has been fixed on to the post box at the corner of Adderly Gate and Emerson Way, and has been attracting praise from residents on social media.

The topper was created by a group called the Little Knit Club, whose members have asked not to be named.

A friend of the group said: “It’s to celebrate the nature community that Emersons Green is aspiring to be.

“It was inspired by a visiting relative from the USA, who  saw one on a visit to Windsor. It was started the day the visitor returned, and the knit club continued and finished it.”
