    Communities have less than 50 days to save 11 phone boxes across Bath and North East Somerset.

    BT has identified kiosks from Keynsham to Radstock that are increasingly redundant and plans to remove them.

    For £1, the price of a phone call, councils, charities and landowners can step in and “adopt” them.

    Since the launch of the scheme, more than 5,000 communities across the UK have taken up the offer.

    Some have been transformed into libraries, art galleries and shops, filled with plants like in Bath’s Southgate shopping centre, or used to house life-saving kit like defibrillators.

    It comes after the use of payphones has fallen by 90% over the past decade.

    The kiosks can be adopted by Bath and North East Somerset Council, town or parish councils, registered charities, and anyone who has a phone box on their land.

    But it is not available to other individuals, community groups such as residents associations or commercial organisations.
