Conister Bank saves Cregneash Phone Box!

Juan Kelly hugs a phone box

Conister Bank, the Isle of Man's only independent local bank, has reach an agreement with Manx Telecom that will ensure the booth will be kept in place as an operational payphone for the next ten years. Under the terms of the agreement, Manx Telecom will reinstall the phone inside that had already been removed.

"We have been watching this with some interest and were saddened to hear that a plan had been submitted for the removal of the existing telephone kiosk."

Juan Kelly Managing Director

They've become an adopted part of the Manx cultural landscape and we felt we had to do something to help preserve the Cregneash phone. Maybe others will follow suit now and save the rest. If there was ever a time to hug a phone box this is it!' remarked Conister Bank's Managing Director Juan Kelly.

Over 500 people have signed an online petition campaigning against their removal.
