Olympic Post Boxes Remain GOLD in Dorset
10:13am 29th July 2013
Post boxes painted gold in honour of Dorset's Olympic and Paralympic Gold medal winners are to stay Gold permanently.
They're in honour of paralympic sailor Helena Lucas and Peter Wilson who won the men's gold double trap shooting.
Helena's box at Pound Piece, Portland, has received a fresh coat of paint and a plaque to remind users of the special local link to London 2012... the same treatment as for Peter's at Cheapside, Sherborne.
The location of all 111 gold post boxes painted in honour of our Gold medalists can be seen here.
