To mark the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Royal Mail has created five special postboxes across the UK.  The postboxes are decorated in vibrant pink and purple and include graphics and encouraging messages to participating teams.  Letter Box Study Group members and friends were out and about photographing the boxes as soon as they were unveiled.

The locations of the postboxes are:

Birmingham – New Street, B2 (Type A pillar box by Machan Engineering)


London – Southampton Place, WC1 (Type C twin aperture pillar box by Andrew Handyside)


Edinburgh – High Street, EH1 (Type A pillar box by Carron Company)


Cardiff – St John Street, CF10 (Type A pillar box by McDowall.Steven)


Belfast – Donegall Square, BT1 (Type C twin aperture pillar box by Carron Company)
