Have you noticed the addition to the top of the finger sign post opposite the pond?
The Parish Council would like thank Mr Chris Bradley-Watson for his public spirited donation to the village of the sign that he felt should be reinstated into its original location, on the finger sign post on the Common opposite the village pond, having disappeared many years ago.
