Stoke Ferry new Village Sign and re-furbished Bench – 13.03.19

By now many of you will have seen the new Village Sign at Stoke Ferry.

This was started last summer when the Parish Council asked the local art group for some ideas for a new sign. We then commissioned our local hardware company, family run Thomas Bonnetts, to make a bespoke iron sign.

We wanted this sign to be a statement piece of artwork which reflects iconic images, past and present, from around the village so we have a Ferryman, the old Railway Station, The Hall and the former Church.

This structure comprises of over 100 pieces of metal and well over 200 nuts and bolts. It took over 70 hours to make and over 20 hours to paint.

I am sure we can all agree this beautiful piece of art will be a talking point for many years and we thank the team at Bonnetts for all the hard work they have put into this.

I would also like to thank another local family, Stephen Scotney, who has worked on the newly refurbished bench now placed in the garden area. Once again, local families are helping our community to improve.

Thank you from SFPC to all those who have worked on these projects.
