The old red phonebox which is tucked away beside the old retired Hernhill village shop has had some notices slapped on it by the BT. They say no longer is it viable and that they feel they must remove the service. What happened to public service from our utilities companies? All destroyed by shareholder greed?
Well, if you pass the old thing make a call – it’s only 20p. I get my kids to do it to my mobile for fun (well they are 2 and 3 yrs). Perhaps then BT might reconsider. If they don’t I understand they will offer the phonebox itself to the village for a nominal fee….It does beg the question what is the point in keeping it without the workings? Any ideas what we would do with it?
