Following in the footsteps of artists like Banksy, the Times has a great article about residents in Norwich who woke up last week to find their postboxes had become works of art.

Thanks to the guerrilla rebranding, a property hotspot known locally as the “golden triangle” now boasts pillar boxes in blue, yellow and, in one particularly affluent district, gold. In another neighbourhood a 3ft question mark was painted on the pavement near a mailbox.

The best part of the story is the reaction from the locals- despite the moaning from the postal service, the people of Norwich have happily welcomed more colour into their lives. Lets hope it gets to stay for a while.
