Last calls for village phone box

There’s been a phone box near to the white railings on Main Street for over a century but the next few weeks will be your last chance to make a call. In an era when nearly everyone – even many children – carries a mobile phone, the number of calls made from rural phone boxes has plummeted to the point where they are simply uneconomical.

The good news is that East Keswick Parish Council has bought the red phone box so it wont disappear; only the telephony connected to it will do. The Parish Council is now inviting comments on what the phone box might be used for in the future. Please pass yours on to
