KIOSKS: Need to keep our phone box

editorial image

I’ve read that there is plan to remove about 180 of the red telephone kiosks.

They might be old fashioned now and with the Smartphone being here, but in rural areas such at Thropton, Harbottle, Snitter and other remote rural places there is no mobile signal.

If the kiosks went there wouldn’t be much chance of telephoning as the signal isn’t very good past Thropton.
