London is calling

London is Calling – An infographic by the team at Marriott London Hotels

After having lived in various countries such as Spain and Costa Rica, I can now say that I am proud to call London ‘home’. So many Londoners are actually ‘adopted’ from elsewhere and I’m one of them. Which is why it makes me sad to hear that one of London’s most iconic symbols, the red telephone booth, is in decline. There are currently less than 11,000 left in England, due to the onset of smart phones and the lack of need for phone boxes. I don’t think I have ever used a telephone booth, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like to see them in my neighbourhood. And I think that that’s how a lot of people feel. So when I heard about the ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ programme to help save them, I couldn’t help but share it. It’s not cheap though, so the programme works best as a community project as opposed to an individual one. But I really think that that’s the beauty of it.
