Having placed the order for the refurbishment of four of our eight signposts, we are now having to chase the contractor rather firmly into actually doing the work – a not unfamiliar problem. Our parish clerk is very persistent and will no doubt nag the contractor into eventual performance. The perpetrators who affixed their notices with metal staples have responded to our complaint with a complete apology, and promised to use plastic cable ties in future. Personally I would prefer something bio-degradable but sometimes one just has to let these things go.
Once we have a full set of smart-looking signposts we will publish the “adopt-a-signpost” register. It seems right to wait as there is little point in someone cleaning a signpost that is about to be taken away for complete repair and re-painting.
