I am very sad to report that even as the weather has warmed up, serious illness has forced Mike Hoare to lay down his paintbrush. His pal Peter has repainted S370 and S371 in the Wirral, S229 and S230 at Ollersett, New Mills, and S2 and S29 near the Shooting Cabin on the Snake Path.

Phone me at Phone 0161 283 7824, if you have any questions, or wish to “adopt” any of signs 506, 507, 510, 514, 517, 518, 521/2/5/6/9, 537/8, 540/1/2/3/7/8. Their locations are shown above or, in the case of existing signs, on the Signpost Gallery of our website, together with photos -

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