People in Southport are loving the new Remembrance themed toppers which have appeared in the town.
The beautiful crochet work is the work of the new Southport Hookers group, whose members have been creating some really eye-catching work locally.
Their latest work has seen some moving Remembrance postbox toppers in Churchtown, Crossens and Banks dedicated to those who have served their countries, ahead of the Remembrance services taking place in the town this weekend.
A Southport Hookers spokesperson said: “We love them! We have been planning the Remembrance toppers since September.
“It has been a real team effort. Each topper has been worked on by at least five of our members.
“We have played to each others’ strengths and have learnt a few new skills along the way.
“Hopefully next year we will be able to go bigger and better!
“We have been overwhelmed by the reaction to our toppers, we have had so many lovely messages and knowing that they raise a smile or two really keeps us going.
“The postboxes we have chosen to cover are located near to where our members live.
“So if you can see a postbox topper it means that there is a Southport Hooker nearby.
“If you are interested in learning to crochet or if you are already an avid fan and would like to meet like-minded people, please contact us via our Southport Hookers Facebook page.
“We do more than just postbox toppers and would love to welcome new members.”
The postbox toppers have wowed local people.
Speaking on the Southport Hookers Facebook page, Chris Watkinson said: “They are brilliant.”
Debra Moore said: “Love the one in Crossens. Thank you so much.”
Meryl Birchall said: “Love the one in Banks, thank you so much, you are so talented.”
Bev Alderson said: “Beautiful, lest we forget.”
More acts of subterfuge are being planned in the coming weeks, including 3 new locations and plenty of Christmas Cheer!
Southport Hookers members meet every Sunday at a secret location in Southport, with new people invited to get involved. All they need is bags of enthusiasm, bags of Yarn and a desire to carry out random acts of kindness across the community.
