RED LETTER DAY FOR FAMILIAR FEATURES ON BRIGG STREETS
It appears that all the post boxes in Brigg are being repainted.
The one pictured here is at the junction of King's Avenue and St Helen's Road. When we took it there was still a Wet Paint warning sign in place.
The growth of email and social media has greatly reduced the number of letters posted in the UK but hats off to postal bosses for keeping the familiar post boxes in good order to serve us for future years.
Older members of the community appreciate it.
And that reminds us that we need to buy a new book of stamps.
The first post boxes in Britain were put in place during the 1850s.
