Letter box

Letter box

Royal Mail have indicated that they will soon be installing an additional letter box on Park Street. This will be welcome news for those who have missed the letter box capacity since the Post Office closed a couple of years ago.

For those of you wondering where the popular Park Street horse has gone, the answer is that it has been temporarily removed by the Bosworth in Bloom team for a revamp with a new layer of woven willow.
