The BBC web site picked up the story and as you can see there was much media activity around the phone box in Church Street, with camera crews falling over themselves to film for local news programs.

The school are very pleased to learn that the Parish Council have decided to donate the £5,000 prize money to the school. Many thanks to them (and to Nigel Bennee for the photos).

The Parish Council have “adopted” the K6 Telephone Kiosk from BT and have asked the School to be involved in putting it to an alternative use as an art installation in the village.

The school is really pleased to be taking up this challenge; we have decided to use the project as an opportunity to stimulate creative writing in the school by regularly installing a well known character, historical or fictitious, using the telephone.

The first challenge has been to our Year 1 children who have been responsible for creating a very familiar figure from our history books.  Along side this, children in Year 5 have written some interesting stories about why they think he might be in the phone box, who he might be phoning and how his conversation might go. We hope that you will enjoy this activity as much as we already have.

Congratulations and well done to Emma Kronig Year 5 for being our first Village Newsletter contributor for this project. Here's her story:
