PRESERVING LONDON'S STREET HERITAGE
(RED LETTER BOXES & TELEPHONE BOXES)
When the Belgravia Society enquired as to when the red letter boxes would be repainted, there was a favourable response. Our recent correspondence with dated 18 July regarding the appearance of some postboxes in London. particularly in the SW1 postcode area.
We were advised that all the postboxes across London are in a 5 year paint cycle. They were last painted in 2014.
The Belgravia Society was informed that Royal Mail engineers had difficulties painting some of the postboxes in the SW1 postcode area due to restricted access. However, Weather permitting: these postboxes will be painted by the end of summer 2017.
Below is a list of the postboxes due to be painted: This is good news for Belgravia. How about our red telephone boxes receiving TLC next!

We need to keep a keen eye on our street furniture in London. Let us know if you notice a sad pillar box or telephone box that needs attention.
