We're a strange bunch in Blighty. As the we approach the celebrations for the Queen's platinum Jubilee there's great plans being made for elaborate celebrations. Meanwhile others are marking it in a more modest and very British way by knitting and crocheting postbox toppers.
Knitted postbox toppers first started appearing across the UK during lockdown as a way to honour NHS staff and put a smile on people's faces. Since then, the knitted creations have been used to honour special occasions such as Easter, Christmas and Remembrance Day.
Now they are starting to spout up across the country to honour our Queen's Jubilee. We hope you enjoy this short video highlighting creations from this quirky trend!
