Residents Pleased At Telephone Box Refurbishment

Local residents in Nettleham have today been admiring the painting of the traditional telephone box which stands on the Green in the village.

The painting of the telephone box was requested Nettleham Parish Council following retention of the kiosk by BT last year.

The kiosk is now resplendent in a fine coat of glossy red paint with the crowns near the top finished in gold.

Nettleham Parish Councillor Giles McNeill said:

"We had a Property Committee last week were concerned to learn that no progress had been made, save that BT would, at an unspecified future date, have the telephone box inspected.
"I am please that the dedicated, hard work by the Council's staff has led to this iconic piece of street furniture being re-painted. Hopefully this will not go unnoticed in next year's Best Kept Village Competition."
