    Default Carl's golden letterbox

    Near the home of each UK gold-medal winner, the Post Office is busy painting a letter box gold to celebrate. This is the one in Sark, to celebrate Carl Hester's gold. I think it is the only letter box on Sark! http://www.sark.co.uk/sark-gets-its-gold-post-box-1646/
