Recycle, Book Swap & Information Phone Box

The old, telephone box outside the Rodney Pub owned by the Parish Council has been refurbished and converted on their behalf by the Residents Association.  We have a team of volunteers keeping the kiosk tidy and checking the display and books, making sure it is current and up-to-date.  Please pop in, and take a look at the various leaflets in the racks, swap a book and check out the posters on the board.
