BT is offering residents in Berkshire the option to adopt a telephone box

The red phone box in the Cumbrian village of Loweswater in the Lake District is the 3,000th box to be adopted in the UK under BT’s Adopt a Kiosk programme. TELEPHONE boxes are being turned into defibrillators as part of a new scheme to help save lives in the community. Residents will be able to 'adopt' their local phone box for just £1 and convert them into something more useful. Katherine Bradley, operations manager at BT, said: "We are pleased to be giving even more local communities the chance to adopt a phone box. "The opportunities are endless and we have already seen some amazing transformations.
