Aberdonian Neil Fachie, who won gold in Saturday’s track cycling event at the Paralympics, is being commemorated by a gold post box in Golden Square in his home town. The Royal Mail, who are printing stamps for all Paralympian golds, have released the stamp celebrating the success of Neil Fachie and Barney Storey MBE.
Dame Anne said: “It’s great to see Royal Mail honouring the successes of these Paralympians in such a way. Neil Fachie’s gold post box will leave a lasting legacy and landmark in the city centre, and is a welcome addition to the many post boxes Aberdeen has seen painted during the Olympics. I’m very proud of our Team GB Paralympics team who are currently second in the medals table with 13 golds, it’s fantastic.”
The stamp will be available from the Union Street Post Office, 489 Union Street and Aberdeen St Nicholas Post Office in the St Nicholas Centre as of Monday 3rd September.
The post box on Golden Square was painted this morning (Sunday 2nd).
