Gilding the Postbox
Sark’s post box received a fresh coat of gold paint this month in readiness for the summer season. The post box, the only one on Sark, is usually dark blue but was painted gold last summer to celebrate the Olympic gold medal win in dressage by Sark horseman Carl Hester. The post box has become something of a local celebrity featuring in the carriage tours and being photographed by many of the island’s visitors.
