 SSALC launches 2018 K6 phone box competition in Sussex

 

Following the success by Ticehurst PC in winning last year’s award with Heathfield & Waldron PC as runner up, the 2018 competition is launched today in association with Sussex Heritage Trust.

We are looking for imaginative uses of K6 phone boxes in communities where the initiative has been supported by the local town or parish council. Across the Country 5,000 redundant phone boxes have now been adopted – so there will be one very close to you !

Such an imaginative use is that by Kingsbridge Town Council in Devon where, believe it or not, the phone box has been turned into a nightclub, complete with glitter ball, lighting and a sound system. Use of the dial a disc system costs £1 and all proceeds go the Kingsbridge Charity.

We look forward to something similarly imaginative in Sussex; the winner and runner up will be announced at the WSALC or ESALC Conferences in October when cash vouchers to be used against SSALC services will be awarded.

Entries with photographs and description are to be with SSALC CEO by Friday 7th September and will be judged by an independent panel.
