The Royal Mail post pox, pillar box red and one of the most iconic symbols of Britain has been undergoing a quiet revolution during these Olympic games. Someone had, in my view, the genius idea of painting a post box gold in the home town of each gold medal winner in the UK team (they also issue a stamp in their honour as well). This was launched with little fanfare, they just started appearing the day after the medal has been won (something else I like – win gold medal and your stamp and postbox are there the next day). So as I came in to work this morning the painters were decamping their painting equipment from a van to paint one for yesterday’s historic gold medal by Nicola Adams the first ever female boxing gold medalist. It’s a fantastic idea I think and I will smile every time I see one of these. How long I wonder before there is a gold post box spotting club ?
