Bournville Conservatives are concerned that much of our heritage furniture around the village, railings, phone boxes and post boxes, are sorely in need of maintenance and a lick of paint. We have made repeated representation to both the Bourvnille Village Trust and BT requesting that they become more proactive in the maintenance of these valued items.
We were very pleased, therefore, to see that the pair of grade II listed phone boxes on the Bournville Green are in the process of being repainted.
The phone boxes are grade II listed being K6 Telephone Kiosks designed by the renowned Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1935.
We understand that the work is being undertaken by BVT although it will be re billed back to BT who actually own the boxes.
