A stay of execution

Save the phone box

Happy New Year!

The Laxey red telephone box could be granted a last-minute reprieve from being removed from the village.

A sign was placed in the phone box in December advising that it would be removed, along with a few others dotted around the island. The boxes could remain if the Local Authorities step in to pay for ongoing maintenance.

For now, the Laxey phone box remains in situ but its future is under consideration.

Watch this space!  Er, I don’t mean an empty space where the box is. It won’t be the same without this part of our heritage. Please save it!
