 6.68 KIOSK we have received notification of a proposal to remove the public payphone and an invitation to adopt the red kiosk on the green.  Unfortunately Harrogate Borough Council have not given us enough time to consult with the public about this, we have responded strongly objecting to the removal of the telephone service and the kiosk.  If anyone has any views about this please contact the clerk or respond to HBC directly on 01423 556666 and the details can be found under planning at

Please contact the clerk if you have any information or photos that you would like to be posted on it.  We keep it up to date regularly and we hope that villagers are finding it useful;, any feedback would be gratefully received.
