Olympic success post boxes are staying gold
5:51pm Friday 2nd November 2012 in News
Post boxes celebrating Olympic and Paralympic successes will remain gold permanently in celebration of their phenomenal success, the Royal Mail announced yesterday.
A total of 110 boxes have been painted across the UK.
And many have now become cherished local landmarks in their own right with people visiting them and posting their pictures on social media sites.
Steve McGuinness, Royal Mail’s Delivery Director for North and West Yorkshire, said: “We are delighted at the way people took to this simple idea. The gold post boxes gave communities even more opportunity to mark the successes and became a part of local celebrations of London 2012.”
