Red phone box saved?

A traditional red telephone box could be saved after residents offered to continue look after it.

The box, on Horderns Road, in Chapel-en-le-Frith, is due to be removed by BT but Chapel Parish Council could adopt it.

Local resident Steve Wragg said for the last 35 years residents have tended the area around the phone box including the planting of spring bulbs and would be happy to look after the telephone box, keeping it clean and painting it.

The parish council are to look into the necessary lease agreement they would need to sign up to.
