New sign unveiled at Stoke Ferry




A new village sign and Women’s Institute commemorative bench were unveiled in Stoke Ferry on Saturday afternoon.

Family-run business Bonnetts, based in Stoke Ferry, casted the new village sign using metal with colour detail to showcase different aspects of the village. These were the church, the former railway station which closed in 1965, the river and Stoke Ferry Hall.

The sign is a parish council initiative as part of improvements to a central gardens area of the village. Over the last few months, the parish council has arranged planting of the gardens area, which had previously been bare without any plants or flowers.

Parish clerk Helen Richardson said: “It is hoped that as this is a central part of the village it can be enjoyed by all residents who pass by it , and visitors to the village.”

The parish council also unveiled an unused Women’s Institute commemorative metal bench on the day for the same area of the village.
