HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Ed McKeever of Bradford on Avon… winner of the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in the 200m kayak sprint. The Town is very proud of you and thank you for the rather natty gold post box in the Shambles… just a shame we don’t have a Post Office to go with it! (Oooh… political comment!). Anyway, well done Ed.
Our postman told us that he is actually from Farleigh Wick, just down the road, but their post box only takes approximately 4 letters a week, so they did the Bradford one as he used to paddle here!
I guess this will mean I’ll have loads of new faces joining me on the river in the mornings!…
Sorry about the bin bags Ed!
