Finally, the weather looks to be improving. I took the chance last week to order the new parts to restore the phone box – the signs, glass and metal frames. The paint is already here waiting for the weather to warm up just a little bit more.
On a negative note, the inside light fitting and bulb has been stolen, with just the bare wire left. A bit of a random thing to steal, but I suppose whoever took it must have really been in a dark place. I guess it reinforces my belief that the phone box should be locked.
Also, you might have noticed that Porty-based adventure cyclists Graham Kitchener and Pauline Symaniak have hung a huge poster on the door of the phone box to drum up interest for a talk (on 26th April) about their epic cycle across America… Hopefully it will be well attended.
