BT are looking for councils to adopt their iconic "Jubilee" red public pay phones as part of a dismantling programme which would see the iconic phone boxes - without phone - adopted by parish councils, for the nominal fee of £1. The councils would then look after the boxes in the future.
Parish councils are being urged to respond to a consultation BT is carrying out at the beginning of January. Although some of the kiosks are used occasionally, some of the boxes in Great Sampford, Littlebury Green and Little Bardfield have not been used within the last 12 months.
