Mystery as town post boxes get crochet hats

We have seen yarn bombing and graffiti - now towns are being hit by random acts of crochet kindness.
Post boxes in a number of towns in east Norfolk and Waveney have been given colourful crochet 'hats', topped off with cuddly creatures including a Teddy bear, a bunny and a chick.
Many of the designs have been found by people in Lowestoft.
Others have mysteriously popped up in other areas across Waveney, east Suffolk and Norfolk, including in Great Yarmouth, Kessingland and Southwold.
Many feature Easter displays and others give messages of hope.

"It so fantastic to see them popping up all around the town. Such a fantastic idea from the person doing them all with different designs, to bring smiles to us all at this difficult time."

Passer-by in Southwold, Chris Mortimer said: "It certainly brightened my day up, a lot of time and effort went into making these, the people who made them are really talented.
"I would like to thank them by giving them some Easter eggs for their contributions."
Known locations of the designs so far are on Norwich Road, Westwood Avenue, Ramona Road, Rotterdam Road and Stradbroke Road in Lowestoft with others popping up in Gorleston, Hopton, Kessingland and Southwold.
Kelly Ann Head designed the Easter themed crochet hat located on the junction of Norwich Road and Rotterdam Road.
Kelly said: "I was on furlough for six and a half months and I have been doing crotchet for the past few years.
"I decided I wanted to make people smile and cheer everybody up during these difficult times so that people had something to talk about other than Covid and it looks like that has worked.
"It has been up since Friday and only took me a few days to make."
Kelly confirmed she only made the crochet design on Norwich/Rotterdam Road and it remains to be seen who has designed the others.
