Barton Telephone Box Library

We would like to express their heartfelt thanks to Harry and Valarie Baines who have kindly looked after the village telephone box library on the High Street since it was first purchased from B.T by the Parish Council for £1.  Over the years they have generously given over their time and space(!) to store and sort donated books, replenish stocks for borrowing, and maintained the up-keep of the telephone box, ensuring it is kept tidy and organised. It is thanks to their efforts, the telephone box library has now become a much-loved community asset to the village. Harry, Valerie, we are very grateful – Thank you!

After many years of looking after the telephone box library, Valerie and Harry have now decided it is the right time to retire. We are now looking for a new volunteer to take on its upkeep. If you have some time and would be willing to look after the telephone box library, please email the PC Clerk at:
