Gold Post Box

Remember my story about the post boxes? Well I have an absolutely unique (almost unique – there are 29 of them) one to add to the collection.

For every Gold Medal won by team GB Royal Mail have painted a post box gold. How cool is that. And they’ve done it in the home town of the Gold Medal winner. Even more cool! We have two here in Leeds and Gav and I went off to look for one of them the other day.

Here it is in the center of Leeds.

And they are going to do the same for any Gold Medal winners in the Paralympics Games too so there may be more to add to this rare and amazing collection.

Apparently they will go back to red eventually but for now I’m off to look for another unique one to add to my post box photo obsession.
