Signpost at Twelve Oaks (Cock and Hen)

Signpost at Twelve Oaks

The fingerpost at Twelve Oaks (Cock and Hen) has suffered the indignity of having one of its arms drop off. (Unlike Greek statues, we do prefer our signposts to have a full set of arms).

At our first meeting on 18th May 2015, Brightling Parish Council resolved to put the repair in hand.  We also resolved to replace the signpost at Oxleys Green, which is beyond repair.  The parish clerk has instructed our chosen contractor to go ahead with the work.

In the long run, as I have mentioned before, we want to have a rolling programme of refurbishment so that signposts are repaired before they get to this point.  Each year, East Sussex County Council will give us a 50% subsidy for work on the signposts, to a maximum of two per year.  So that is our two for this year – the rest will have to wait until May 2016.

NB the missing arm at Twelve Oaks has been taken into safe custody by Caroline Croft until the repair takes place; it is not lost.
