Former phone kiosk in Church Road

We asked BT when they would be removing the former phone kiosk. This is their reply:

“We are involved with the payphone side of things in the Planning Office here and can tell you that the kiosk is one that we are proposing to remove as part of a UK wide programme whereby a large number of unused boxes are being removed.  The removals will take place over the next couple of years or so. Our contractors work around the country from area to area and they determine the order in which they are done, which I’m afraid means its’ not possible to give a time frame beyond that at the moment.

I’m very sorry we cannot be more precise at the moment – it’s a long process, unfortunately.”

The festival commences on Friday afternoon and continues through the evening with live music from Frozen Raspberries. On Saturday we have entertainment from Rum Dogs in the afternoon followed by The Harvs and Dulcet Tones in the evening. Sunday has a different pace in the afternoon with music from solo artist Adam Meek followed by Beat De Lux and the festival concludes in the early evening. All this in the lovely setting of our traditional English country garden.
