Gold Post Boxes

Royal Mail has painted some of its iconic and much-loved red post boxes gold to celebrate every Team GB and Paralympics GB gold medal win during the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games.
Here are four of them that I hunted down this week (thanks to Jo driving and some dodgy navigating by me).  If you want to find one yourself you can visit the Post Office site and look at the map. It helps if you live in the UK, of course!

Newent - Gloucestershire, England - Charlotte Dujardin
Olympic Gold medal Equestrian Individual Dressage

Trull - Somerset, England - Deborah Criddle
Paralympic Gold medal Equestrian: Mixed Individual Freestyle Test - Grade III

Hay-on-Wye - Powys, Wales (though the Post Office call it Herefordshire, England!) - Josie Pearson
Paralympic Gold medal Athletics: Womens Discus

Flint - Flintshire, Wales - Jade Jones
Olympic Gold medal Taekwondo Women's 57kg

Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
