The old sign had become worn and even re painting was not considered a good enough fix.

So the new sign was created for a longer lasting solution.

Mayor, Councillor Richard Hobbs, said: “Splendid new village sign for Queen Adelaide designed by Stuart Green and fabricated by Brian Acred, a real village production.”

Local artist Mr Green runs Willows Studios from his home in Queen Adelaide, while his near neighbour Mr Acred creates metalwork from his home based workshop.
