To celebrate every Team GB London Olympic Gold Medals, Royal Mail painted some of its red post boxes gold in the Olympic Gold Medalist’s home towns. One can be found in Newent, outside the Post Office to celebrate Charlotte Dujardin winning Olympic Gold in
the individual equestrian dressage event on her horse Valegro. She also won a Gold as a member of the team dressage event. Charlotte who lives and trains in Newent also appeared on specially made stamps commemorating the achievements of our gold medal winning Olympians.
Charlotte Dujardin became the second British woman to win three Olympic gold medals by retaining her individual dressage title in Rio 2016 again on Valegro .
