As you can see from the photo (right), the large oak which will be carved to make the Village Sign was lowered into position on 6 February, under the watchful eyes of Parish Council Chairperson Pat Clare, and Claxton Pits Trust Chairman, Professor Roland Kaye. The Pits Trust is funding the sign, designs for which were considered at the 2011 Fair on the Yare. The full photo set (Creating the Village Sign) is on our flickr site at http://www.flickr.com/photos/78542021@N04/sets.
The wood sculptor, Ben Loughrill, will – weather permitting – begin the sculpting on site next Monday 11 February. Ben is happy to work in front of an audience, but we ask that any onlookers should maintain a safe distance from what, until completion, will remain a work zone.
