Simple Pleasures – Phone Boxes

A simple pleasure for me is finding some time to read the local newspapers and enjoy some of the more wacky and interesting bits of news. Well, here is an article from the local regional newspaper from a few weeks ago. This article is looking at the new lease of life that the familiar UK phone boxes get. This is part of a scheme run by BT (British Telecom), called the Adopt a Kiosk Project. This particular phone box is in the Somerset parish of Westbury-sub-Mendip where it has been turned into a library.

    Wow. What an interesting post. Do they have to buy them or are they given away for a “good use”? A library. Very clever. Blessings,
