From June 2015 FIFTY post boxes around the UK are to be given a new feature to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Mail Special Stamps programme.

Is there one near you?

On Friday evening we visited the two gold post boxes in Leeds that were painted gold following Nicola Adam’s gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.  Can you see the new addition to the double aperture Elizabeth 2nd post box on the right?
