Maintenance

S299The biggest job was removing a hawthorn tree which had fallen on S299 at Tom Wood, near Charlesworth. Sign undamaged but invisible and took 2 hours to clear. See the photos below.

S530 Uprooting and re-orientating after it had been disorientated twice. S085 The iron plate on the signpost was taken down at the second attempt for refurbishing. Cold weather has prevented Pete and Mike from continuing their re-painting work on other signposts. Plaque 3 On 6th Sep, David re-painted the Derek Taylor plaque on Taylor House.

Replacement

Signposts facing north or under trees often need a clean at this time of year, so please assist.
