Post Office Was Once An Outdoor Toilet

Britain's Daily Mail reports, "A building which was once an outdoor toilet for a primary school has been transformed into a fully-functioning post office staffed by pupils."

According to the piece, "The small brick building was refurbished by the school several years ago and used as a library and for assemblies. But following a £250 grant from local Conservative Councillor Clare Wood they began to transform it into a post office. It opens daily during the pupils’ lunch break between 1pm and 1.15pm, and for another 15 minutes after lessons at 3pm. During school holidays Lucy Pilgrim, landlady at the local pub The White Swan, has offered to step in and run it until the children return."

It goes on to say, "Money earned by the students will be put into the school’s accounts, with the children then deciding what they would like the cash spent on - with sporting equipment and books expected to be top of their shopping list."
