Save Our Signs - a new direction

Expert advice leads to rethink

Last updated: Sunday 22nd October 2017

Characterful street sign in Hampton Wick

The HWA is raising awareness of the importance to our local heritage made by our many distinctive road signs. We are concerned that some are in need of renovation and that they are in danger of being replaced by soulless modern signs.

In our last Newsletter we asked for volunteers to help with renovations that we might carry out ourselves and we’d like to thank everyone who came forward.

We have also benefited from some expert advice from a local resident with knowledge of this type of restoration work. As a result we have decided not to go ahead with attempts to clean and repaint the signs ourselves. Instead we are making enquiries into the financial and other implications of having the signs temporarily removed and professionally restored. This approach will ensure the best possible finish and guarantee the long-term future of our lovely old signs.

If you have any ideas or offers of help to contribute, please email: info@hamptonwick.org.uk.
