WALLASEY residents are in awe of the latest post box topper which has been spotted on Seabank Road.

The intricate crochet design shows a 3D head and shoulders of the Queen adorned with crown and necklace details.

Julie Walker, 54, from Liscard is the mastermind behind the latest royal creation which she began crocheting in February.

She told the Globe: “It took about three weeks to make but the biggest challenge was where to display it.”

Wirral Globe:

The crochet topper is the twelfth one of Julie’s designs to be displayed on various post boxes across the borough.

Despite the popularity of the toppers amongst most residents, Julie has faced issues with her creations being stolen or damaged.

In March this year Julie had two of her toppers stolen from post boxes and third vandalised.

However, to combat the spate of thefts a local business has offered to help.

Julie said: “I was obviously concerned about her being vandalised or stolen.

“When the ‘Tommy’ one I made last year was vandalised the lovely traders used to bring him in each evening after I repaired him.

“I spoke with the owners of Kollectiv after I heard they were doing something for the Platinum Jubilee so I thought they might appreciate having my Queen and they agreed to look after her again.

“I do hope it brings lots of visitors to their shops as we should all be shopping local when possible.”

Since putting the topper on display, photographs of Julie’s work has been shared by thousands on social media.

Julie said: “I am amazed by the reaction to her. The comments have been fantastic.

“I’m happy that she has raised a smile or two. She is my twelfth topper now and by far my favourite.”
