BEEFORD PHONE BOX
BT has notified East Riding of Yorkshire Council that they are considering the removal of 18 public payphones/boxes in East Riding because there has been a decline of over 90% in payphone usage. This will include the payphone in Beeford.
Over the last 12 months the number of calls made from the payphone in Beeford was 1 which is making it very difficult to justify the retention of the payphone. It is with this in mind that BT have put forward several options as follows:-
1. Agree to the removal of the payphone and box in Beeford.
2. Agree that the payphone can be removed but adopt the box.
3. Object to the loss of the payphone and provide evidence for the retention of the payphone.
The Parish Council have agreed that the payphone can be removed due to the non usage of the payphone and neglected poor condition of the box, but have asked to adopt the box so that it can be retained as a local feature. We believe that the traditional red box plays a significant part in our National Heritage and should remain in Beeford. Once the adoption process has been completed further plans for the box will include a refurbishment programme.
BT and the Community Heartbeat Trust are working together to help communities turn their adopted boxes into Local Medical Access Defibrillators, storing the Defibrillator in a well recognised, safe, weather protected location. The current location of the box in Beeford would be ideal as it is next to the village Post Office on the Main Street at the busy junction of the A165. This may be an option that we will be considering.
There may be other suggestions that you wish the Parish Council to consider in relation to the use of the box and your feedback would be very welcome. Please contact the Clerk.
It was proposed and agreed at the last Parish Council meeting dated 15th December 2020 that phone box will undergo a refurbishment programme afterwhich a defibrillator would be installed into the box.
Community Transport Groups and Voluntary Car Scheme providers across East Riding are currently seeking volunteers to assist with delivering vital transport services which enable residents to access local hospitals, doctors surgeries, dentists and shopping amenities.
Beeford have been given the opportunity to join many other towns/villages to join the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign. The Dog Fouling campaign was launched Autumn 2017 and it is aimed at dog walkers who don't scoop the poop.
