The next talk is 'The Postbox Past and Future' by John Fell on the development of the postbox from its Victorian origins to the present day, including a display of four antique postboxes and leading into predictions on the future of the Royal Mail on Friday May 30th at 7.30pm.
In the meantime, let's try and collect photographs of postboxes around the town and elsewhere, I'll add photos to the blog as I take them.
I knew I had one somewhere. Marlborough Lane post box decorated by daffodils by the Pipers Area Residents Association.
