Royalist Val Sawczyn cast off on the regal creation that’s now the crowning glory of the Heysham Road postbox.

“I’ve been knitting for years but this is the first time I decided to knit a post box topper but if it makes me happy, it will make others happy,” said Val.

Val is now working on a knitted version of Tyson Fury for another post box. It’s sure to be a knockout!
