LETTER: Where have the postboxes gone?

Share this article

Do you know that postboxes have disappearing in our area. I don’t know wether they have been stolen or taken down.

My local post box on the Louth Road just past West Ashby on the Fulletby and Hemmingby crossroad has gone together with the one on the next crossroads. We have had no communication that they would go, nor is there a notice on the stump that is left.

I ‘phoned the Royal Mail on Monday who said they would send a message to our local sorting Office and would hear from them. I have not heard from them so far. The lady on the ‘phone couldn’t give me a good answer as to where to post my letters. West Ashby is 1.2miles from us, where they was a Post Box on Monday.

We are relatively fit OAP’s at the moment and will find this a long way to go just to post a letter.
