VILLAGERS in Tytherington have saved their familiar red phone box after BT no longer wanted to support it.

The kiosk is being restored but will no longer have a phone inside.

Suggestions on alternative uses for the box have been invited, with ideas submitted so far ranging from a mini art gallery or exhibition area to a collection point for a food bank.

A number of kiosks are being decommissioned by BT due to falling demand and increased use of mobile phones but towns and villages can make a bid to keep them once the phones have been removed.
