A MYSTERIOUS artist has been at work decorating post box tops in an Ayr neighbourhood.

Creations (like the one pictured) have been popping up all over the country as creative minded knitters seek to spruce up their areas.

We reported on a similar story in Girvan at the end of last year.

This post box cover was displayed on Ewenfield Road and the New Year design was preceded by a Christmas themed one.

One reader wrote to the Advertiser to say the whole street is “overwhelmed and loving the idea”.
