North Down DUP MLA Gordon Dunne has received confirmation from Royal Mail that the Post Box at High Street in Bangor is one of four ‘festive post boxes’ which has been painted green for December across the UK by Royal Mail. The MLA added:
‘Following a number of queries regarding the mystery painting of the green post box in High Street in Bangor, Royal Mail have now delivered confirmation to me that this particular Post Box is one of four festive Post Boxes across the United Kingdom for the month of December.
There has been quite a bit of speculation and mystery as to why this Post Box was painted green. I have received an assurance from Royal Mail that the Post Box will be restored to its original red colour after the Christmas period and it is reassuring to know that it wasn’t an act of vandalism.’
