Ring and get roses as kiosk saved
STROUD Town Council is coming to the rescue of a well-loved phone box.
At an extraordinary meeting, councillors unanimously agreed to go forward with plans to buy the red phone box for the nominal cost of £1.
If all goes to plan the kiosk will be owned by the council and managed by Summer Street Area Community Association.
Residents launched an appeal to save the K6 box, designed in 1935 to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V, after BT announced plans in May to decommission the phone and remove the kiosk.

Summer Street resident Jenny Bailey appealed to the council to take over the box, under BT's Adopt a Kiosk scheme.
At the extraordinary meeting, Michelle Miles, community association secretary said: "It stands at the entrance of the estate. That phone box is one of the constants of the street, the punctuation mark at the end of town."
Association members visited the 60 houses on the estate to gauge people's opinions. More than 36 residents asked for the box to be kept.
BT will remove the phone from the box before it is taken over by the council.
The association will consider what the phone box will be used for in the future. Ms Bailey has volunteered to plant it up with flowers.
