Calls for old phone box in Sawbridgeworth to be used as mini-library




The fate of a dilapidated telephone box in Sawbridgeworth has sparked debate among residents.

The K6 kiosk in West Road was adopted by the town council in 2008 and repurposed as a tourist information point.

After it was vandalised and misused there were plans to move it to Bell Street and fit a defibrillator inside, but this was not found to be possible logistically.

Residents commenting on the Sawbridgeworth Facebook group bemoaned the dilapidation of the box and some wondered whether it could be used as a mini-library.

Town clerk Richard Bowran said: "The current thinking, initiated by [mayor] Cllr Annelise Furnace, is that the use of the box should be revisited and the plan now is to put it to our amenities committee for consideration."
