The postbox looks a bit forlorn, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The sign is an insult to a fine postbox

There is no accounting for the gormlessness of a lot of people. One could write a book..
Bill Phillips: You would only have to trawl through what people say on social media to fill several volumes

What a beautiful postbox. Why it is not used anymore?
Bill Phillips: The sign is pointing to where the post office used to be. Like many post offices it has been closed and relocated to a supermarket or convenience store. The postbox is still in use
Quelle jolie boite aux lettres. En France, elles sont carrées et jaunes.
Bill Phillips: Well yours must stand out well too

We have to go upstairs in W H Smith now
Bill Phillips: Same in Worcester. We still have a local one in a convenience store and there is still the main one in town...I think
The sign is for tourists perhaps.
Bill Phillips: Perhaps it is. In which case why not make a new sign. to go on top?
We are fortunate to still have the original Post office in the centre of Shepshed althugh it does now sell stationery and fancy goods as well. The other one we had closed some years ago.
Bill Phillips: We have one in town and a local one in a convenience store. Like Lisl the one in Worcester is upstairs in WH Smith and is a shambles by all accounts
ah yes the red round mail containers in UK
Bill Phillips: to match the red phone boxes which are sadly less common now

seems like the notice would be a more permanent format
Bill Phillips: It would be better...but not as amusing!
