If you’re interested in adopting a kiosk, email us telling us which kiosk you want to adopt.
We’ll review your request and come back to you with kiosk availability, contracts and next steps.
After you’ve agreed and paid your £1, we’ll disconnect the phone and leave you in charge.
Who can adopt?
Recognised local authority (e.g. District or Borough Council)
Parish, Community or Town Council (or equivalent)
Private landowner with one of our phone boxes on their land
We can’t allow private individuals to adopt kiosks unless they own the land the kiosk is on. But our supplier X2 Connect does sell them to interested parties. For further information please contact X2 Connect.
"We wanted to add the book exchange as the mobile library only visits briefly once a month. At Christmas we installed lights on the green for the first time, powered from the phone box, and we also installed a sound system with carols and songs written about the village during the Covid lockdown.”
Jeremy James, Chairman of Church Lawford Parish Council
"It’s a fact that no-one really uses payphones anymore, but they look quite iconic, especially in rural areas like ours, so we wanted to retain it from a heritage perspective. Thankfully, the defibrillator has never had to be used but it’s reassuring to know it’s there in case we ever need it in an emergency.”
Brian Whitehead, Vice Chairman Patrick Brompton Parish Council
