New signs spruce up village
A village in the north of the New Forest National Park has unveiled new signs at four key locations.
The signs in Landford, designed to complement the rural location, include the New Forest National Park logo. The aim is to remind road users that they are within a national park and should drive carefully to help protect this special place.
The project to design and install the signs was run by Landford Community Partnership and Landford Parish Council in partnership with the New Forest National Park Authority.
Ken Parker Co-Chair of the Landford Community Partnership, said: “The signs have already generated tremendous positive feedback by many local residents. They are a great improvement on the old, bent and battered village signs, which did nothing to enhance the visual appearance of the area.”
Sarah Kelly, Landscape Officer at the New Forest National Park Authority, said: “These new village signs are a great example of how working with groups such as the Landford Community Partnership can result in positive changes to the villages in the National Park. The new signs contribute to the look of the village and also remind road users that they are in the New Forest National Park. It is hoped that, if other villages in the National Park like the signs, they will work with us to use the same design.”
