Footpath 2/14 Boardwalk Completed
September 2008: CVPC decided that it will not adopt or sponsor the phone box. See para 157/08 in these minutes.
December 2008: After representations from villagers at the CVPC meeting on 1 December, the Council reconsidered its decision to allow the Post Office telephone box to be removed and resolved to request that BT leave the box in place without a working telephone inside. A volunteer offered to help with the subsequent upkeep. Since the deadline has passed, it is not yet clear whether BT will agree.
5 January 2009: BT has agreed to sell the box (minus the phone) to the Parish Council. Handover date has yet to be defined. CVPC will be looking for voluntary help from villagers (especially those who offered to help at the December parish meeting) to keep the box and its surround in good order.
17 October 2009: Following purchase by CVPC, a group of volunteers is refurbishing the box as a village landmark. See HERE for more details.
