Members of a local community group are celebrating the coronation of King Charles III by brightening up their estate with a beautiful royal post box topper.

The crocheted king and queen are the latest creations from the Knit and Natter group who are based at Circuit House in Woodlands. The group have also made many items for charity, such as baby clothes and blankets for the local hospital.

Rosemary Lambert, Chair of Woodlands New Estate Tenants Club and member of the Knit and Natter group, said:

“The ladies in this group are incredible, the things they make are just fantastic. They made a post box topper to mark the Platinum Jubilee which was very popular and is actually now being displayed in Cusworth Museum.

“We also made a Humpty Dumpty topper for Easter and another one which was a scene showing all the shops here, our neighbours in the flats and it even included the local bus and the driver! That went down really well with the people around here who loved that it was representing them and their local area.”

The Knit and Natter group hold their meetings at Circuit House in Woodlands every Thursday from 10:30am until 3pm – if you live locally and would like to get involved, meet some new people and have a chat then why not drop in to see them?
