From Mark Caroe:
The agenda for the next meeting of the Parish Council is below.
In looking at the situation regarding the phone box it is worth noting that the box has been used just once in the last 12 months, as a result I think it is going to be extremely difficult to ask BT to retain it as a working telephone box. We have in the past argued it was needed because of the poor mobile signal in the village but this has not been supported by use. If we consider keeping the box we will need to consider possible future uses and the cost of insurance and maintenance, which will fall upon the Parish Council (which we all pay for through our rates); we would need a solution that will work over many years. The subject will be discussed at the PC meeting and all will be welcome.
