Sandhurst Health Walks has been in operation since February 2014. The walks are led and organised by a group of dedicated volunteers. We endeavour to have two walk leaders on every walk to ensure our walkers are well looked-after…
Appointments can be made by telephoning 01252 879060 when a representative from the Citizens Advice Bureau is at Sandhurst Council Offices on Tuesday mornings, every other Tuesday, during term time only.
British Telecom have launched a scheme which enables local communities to retain their iconic red telephone boxes.
Some Sandhurst residents may have fond memories of this British institution used by many people before the advent of the mobile phone. They have been in decline over the past decade with many being removed by BT as they are no longer viable.
Little Sandhurst has the last remaining red phone box in the town. It is located close to the Bird in Hand public house adjacent to Edgbarrow Rise.
Sandhurst Town Council have been approached by a resident with the idea of adopting a kiosk. This process involves the following conditions-
Purchase price £1
Requirement for mains supply to remain in place or removal proposed
Maintenance of phone box with application of Post Office red paint to protect metal structure
There are a vast array of ideas for reusing the phone boxes, some already adopted are being used as a grocery shop, a wildlife information centre, a book exchange scheme and a home for a defibrillator (there is one of these already house in the Bird in Hand).
Sandhurst Town Council would like to consult its residents on the requested adoption of the kiosk.
Let us know with a yes or no if you are in favour of the adoption of the phone box and also include a suggestion for its use.
