Phone Box

Nestled in the heart of Freshwater lies a historic red phone box, a relic of times gone by. This iconic structure, once a hub of communication, now stands silent, awaiting a new lease on life. Freshwater Parish Council is exploring innovative ideas to repurpose this cherished piece of heritage.

Potential New Lives for the Phone Box:

  • Mini Library/Book Exchange: Transforming it into a community book swap, fostering a love for reading among locals.
  • Information Kiosk: Providing maps, local history, and event flyers to assist tourists and residents.
  • Art Display: Showcasing local artists’ work or historical exhibits about Freshwater.
  • Environmental Station: Offering recycling tips, seed exchanges, or promoting biodiversity with bee-friendly plant seeds.

This endeavor reflects our community’s dedication to preserving its history while adapting to modern needs. Have an idea? Join the conversation and help shape the future of Freshwater’s beloved phone box. For all enquiries and comments please email Freshwater Parish Council.
