Yarn bombers have been brightening the streets of Weymouth once again.

A beautiful autumnal scene can be seen atop a post box on Portland Road in Wyke Regis.

A squirrel sits in the centre surrounded by an array of hedgehogs, pumpkins, pears and acorns.

The anonymous duo behind the creation described it as ‘a squirrel busy sweeping up the autumn leaves alongside hedgehogs getting ready to hibernate.’

They are the same pair who were behind the spring-themed post box topper consisting of sheep, daffodils and other springtime nature on the same post box.

The secret artists said: “It's more fun to be anonymous and it's exciting when we reveal a new creation.

“We didn't do it for publicity or recognition, and we definitely don't want any fuss - We did it to brighten up people’s lives and make the environment a bit more fun.”

Yarn bombing became popular during the pandemic as a way to brighten everyone’s day and lift their moods.

There are plenty of groups within the Weymouth area that target post boxes as well as bollards.

The crafty duo have revealed that plans for a Christmas topper are already underway.
