Yarn bombers in Hemel Hempstead are creating postbox toppers - through knitting and crocheting - to thank keyworkers for all their hard work throughout the pandemic.

Some of the toppers and have already gone out around the town and members of Yarnbomb Hemel Hempstead have created their designs to celebrate the hard work of all key workers.

From shops, schools, NHS workers and volunteers, lorry drivers, farmers, emergency personnel to name a few.

The group is also creating a display banner to go outside Needlecraft to thank keyworkers, with members each decorating a square.

Christine Allsop, founder of Yarnbomb Hemel, said: "This next display is to thank all keyworkers for all their hard work.

"Gabicci in Hemel have kindly donated some knitted sample squares and many of the shops have given us old uniform so we can use the logo on some of the squares."

Needlecraft is also supporting the group, and has provided wool and is installing a trellis on the side of the building so it can hang the display dedicated to keyworkers.

Christine added: "When you drive along the Leighton Buzzard Road you will get a great view of it. Needlecraft have been fantastic through the lockdowns keeping our ladies supplied with items.

"This display is more relaxed people can choose their own charity to support and will probably be close to where they live."
