Gold Pillar Boxes Celebrate Olympic Wins

No primary category set

Royal Mail have this morning already painted three pillar boxes gold, to celebrate Olympic Women’s Pairs rowing gold medal winners Helen Glover & Heather Stanning and cycling time trial winner Bradley Wiggins.

You’ll find the gold pillar boxes in Heather’s home town of Lossiemouth, Moray and in Penzance, Cornwall for Helen. Bradley Wiggins gold pillar box is in Chorley on Market Street opposite the town hall. Royal Mail pillar boxes have all been their trademark red since 1874 and this is the first time they’ve officially changed colour since then.

Already the Gold post boxes are attracting attention with families such as the Dunn family pictured below taking photographs of themselves and posting them on social networking sites. If you spot one of the gold pillar boxes send us a photo… especially if you happen to be posting your sold items in an Olympic Gold Medal post box.
