Postboxes in Caerleon decorated with knitted Christmas scenes

A knitted Christmas dinner was found on top of a letter box

Postboxes in Caerleon, south Wales, have been decorated with knitted Christmas scenes.

Keen knitters in the area created the scenes and placed them on top of red postboxes overnight.

The village woke up to scenes including a family of skiing penguins and a full Christmas dinner complete with a gravy boat and bottle of bubbly.

The Christmas scenes have been made by the 'Prosecco and Purls' group to raise money for the charity St David's Hospice in the town.

Knitter Barbara Parsons said: “We have been putting them out in the dark so that when people get up the next day, they can see them."

“We do what we can around the village but have only been able to find five full size letterboxes”.

Each display also holds a note to let people know there is a larger nativity scene in the hospice shop in town.

Barbara said: “Everyone has worked so hard. It's a nice little group."
