New use for kiosk

AN old telephone box in Henley could be moved and have a defibrillator installed in it.

AN old telephone box in Henley could be moved and have a defibrillator installed in it.

The red kiosk on the corner of St Andrew’s Road and Belle Vue Road was bought by the town council for a nominal £1 from BT in November 2013.

Now the council is considering relocating the box to the top of Greys Road near the shops at the junction with Manor Road.

Speaking at a meeting of the council’s town and community committee, Councillor Will Hamilton said he supported putting a defibrillator in the kiosk, as some other places had done.

“Thankfully we have got one in Market Place, at Rupert House and Mill Meadows but that area of town doesn’t have one. I think that would be of good use.”



He added that the kiosk was beginning to look grotty while councillor David Nimmo Smith said the red paint was starting to peel off.
