Lions rugged up for winter

Not in the Addie but in the ABC news.  Certainly our local mayor gets a lot of media coverage - with John Faines on ABC radio, on Q and R at the Gpac, and now something about the lions at the gate of his house in Drumcondra, Geelong!

Darryn Lyons' home yarn bombed: Geelong Mayor's lion statues decorated 'with love'

Updated 5 hours 17 minutes ago
Winters in Geelong can be rather cold, but the city's Mayor did not think the lions that guard his house needed rugging up.
Someone else thought otherwise.
This morning, Darryn Lyons discovered the two lion statues outside his house near Geelong's Western Beach had been "yarn bombed", complete with mayoral chains.
Yarn bombing involves stealthily covering public property - such as lamp posts, statues, trees and bike racks - with knitting.
Councillor Lyons said he did not know who was responsible for the knitted scarves, which match the mayor's pink mohawk, but he appreciated that someone had obviously put a lot of energy into it.
A note attached to one of the scarves did not give much away.
"Bombed with love - Midwinter Yarnbombers," it read.

We drove past his house yesterday and the rugged up lions are still there!
