Could this be Watford’s cutest postbox? According to one resident it might just be.

Melanie Dakin says the “beautiful” postbox in Villiers Road, Oxhey, has brought some Christmas cheer to the village following the coronavirus pandemic.

Pictures taken by the 55-year-old shows the postbox having been given festive decorations that have been knitted, including two robins and a birds nest.

The nest was also filled with lollipops, Ms Dakin said.

She believes the design of the decoration is “so pretty” and doubts other areas would have a such a decorated postbox.

Ms Dakin, from Oxhey, said: “It’s really cheered up the village. It’s obviously been difficult for any kind of gathering and things like that so for somebody to be going out and knitting things and just making something that children stop and look at is just a very sweet thing and very cheery for the village at this time.

"There might be other areas where people have decorated their postboxes but I doubt it and certainly not in such a colourful and inventive away."

In a message to the person who knitted the design, she said: “Thank you for your community spirit and cheering people up as they post Christmas cards or go about village life.”
