Glossop’s county councillors have slammed Royal Mail this week for its refusal to repaint the post box on Station Road, Hadfield.

Cllr Dave Wilcox said: “Despite repeated requests for a fresh coat of paint, the response from the postal service has been to deny there’s a problem. I can’t believe their incompetence and disinterest. It looks like it last had a coat of paint when Roland Hill invented the penny black.”
