Vandals destroy festive ‘knit-bomb’ postbox topper in Birchington

The topper was targeted and destroyed

Knitters behind the festive postbox toppers in Birchington have vowed to carry on the tradition despite vandals targeting the creations.

Fantastic festive ‘knit-bombings’ have been appearing across the isle this month. Beautifully created postbox toppers with an array of Santas, angels, snowmen and more have cropped up in Minster, Birchington, Westgate and Cliffsend.

But yesterday (December 8) vandals destroyed one of the toppers in Birchington that had been created by local Karen Everest and other residents.

Karen said: “It’s very upsetting. This is probably someone’s idea of fun. It was always a risk, but one worth taking and we will do it all again next year.”
