The post box on Moorland View Road, Walton, was given a festive woolen covering, complete with bunnies and easter eggs

The same Walton postbox, which is located near to Walton Evangelical Church, was also yarn-bombed and decorated for Christmas last year, as well as Remembrance Day and Halloween.

Yarn bombing is a type or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk.
