Fabulous Phone Boxes!

When I was visiting the south coast recently, I came across this wonderful idea; a phone box being utilised as a community book exchange!


How novel, I thought (sorry) took a photograph and promptly forgot about it.  Then today, I was walking around town, delivering some letters from church by hand and guess what I found?


This fabulous phone box is not a mile from my home and was stuffed full of seed packets, plants and journals – in fact everything a passer-by could wish for, to start their own wild flower meadow!

From the look of several homes in the area, many people have taken advantage of this community initiative as their gardens looked amazing!

I definitely think this deserves a huge shout-out.  Well done to everyone involved.

Not sure how far I walked with Mr JH in two hours but I definitely arrived home lighter of spirit with my faith in altruism having been given an enormous boost.

Sudden Random Thought: Are we the only people on earth not to own a fitness tracker?
