Barley yarnbombers have struck again in the village – and further afield in Barkway and Great Chishill too – all in the spirit of Christmas.

The Barley Knitting Group wanted to use their skills to help others again, after last year's yarnbombing success.

They have set up a Just giving page to raise funds for Herts Young Homeless.

The charity's focus is on preventing homelessness - from education in schools and family mediation, through to supporting 16 to 24-year-olds in their first homes or caring for adults who have mental health issues and housing needs.

The group's Alison White said: "If the yarn-bombed post boxes make you smile or even laugh out loud please donate via www.justgiving.com/fundraising/knitbarley2019."

The group - which also had a stall at the village's Christmas market - meets on the second and fourth Wednesday evenings of each month in The Chequers pub.
