Hawkins Steel Ltd have taken delivery of the red kiosk destined to become Banbury’s new phone box library at their premises in Thorpe Way.

Workers are drawing up plans for custom shelving for the library to be reviewed by Banbury Town Council and work is expected to start next week.

The new phoneless kiosk was donated by BT in line with an agreement with Banbury Town Council to provide an alternative site for the library after it was served with an eviction notice in February.
