KEEN crafters have been coming up with knitted creations across Dorset to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee.

The main celebrations for the jubilee will take place between June 2 and 5, with some people getting in the festive mood by decorating their local postboxes.

One decoration spotted in Blandford Road, Upton, has been a hit with the locals.

Kate Osborne, deputy clerk at Lytchett Minster and Upton Town Council, said: "These wonderful royal themed post box toppers have certainly been given the stamp of approval by the community and are a popular addition to the town’s celebrations to mark this historical milestone for the Queen.

"They really strike a chord with residents and bring a smile to the faces of those walking past. A great deal of time and love goes into making these wonderful creations which capture the town’s community spirit."

Another local creation has been spotted of a knitted queen and her two corgi dogs.

Knitted post box 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.

These knitted post box toppers are not created by one particular person or company and are instead made by talented knitters in the local community.

You could have a go at making one for your local post box.
