Port Navas Phonebox

With typical lack of civic responsibility, BT have removed the phone line from our village call box and are likely to remove the box itself before long.  This box may not be used much, but it’s an important emergency lifeline. Many of our elderly residents have neither mobile phones nor internet access; there is no mobile signal anyway in the middle of the village, and many of the houses are unoccupied for significant periods.

According to OFCOM, our unitary council can block the removal of this service. If you believe that it should be retained, please write to, or email, Mark James who is responsible for Customers and Communities at the Communities and Organisational Development Directorate, Cornwall Council, Room 4S, New County Hall, Truro TR13AY.
