An especial postbox hat has appeared in a South Oxfordshire village created as a tribute for an 11-year old girl who passed away from a rare and undiagnosed brain aneurysm last year.

The ‘sheep art’ was knitted by Yarnsy, an anonymous yarn bomber whose creations can be seen around the county.

Set on Harwell's High Street, a village near Didcot, the bright coloured creation features three fluffy white sheep grazing on a green field full of yellow flowers; a colourful rainbow stands on the background.

Herald Series: Postbox hat in Harwell, near Didcot. Created as tribute for Neve Parlett who passed away in 2021 from an undiagnosed brain aneurysm

Mary Parlett and her family thanked Yarnsy for creating such a fitting tribute to their daughter Neve, who adored the family's sheep.

Mrs Parlett said: “March marks the beginning of the very difficult first anniversary of Neve’s passing, and it is random acts of kindness and the love and support from family and friends that help to keep the Parlett family going through such a devastating time.”

Attached to the postbox hat is a note which reads: "When it rains, look for rainbows. When its dark, look for stars. When you're sad, think of me dancing in fields of sunflowers. In memory of Neve."
