Rougham resident Steve hicks has kindly made a new postbox for Rougham Tower Museum after vandals blew up the old one with fireworks.

The vandalism at the museum took place on the same night as the newly installed defibrillator in Beyton’s phone box was damaged in a similar fashion.

Mr Hicks used his own workshop at HIK 4x4 to fashion some eighth–inch steel into the replacement postbox and a friend of his, who was spraying a car red, donated his sprayer and some paint to finish the job.

There had already been offers made via the museum’s Facebook page for donations towards a new one.

Graham Sage, Rougham Tower Association committee member, said: “We are very pleased to see the generosity and community spirit shown after this callous act of vandalism.”

Mr Hicks has been given a lifetime VIP pass for the museum in recognition of his kindness.
