The decision to erect the new signs was thought up by Parish Council members after the previous signs had become outdated, worn out and coated in rust.

The new signs feature site maps and showcase site history of the relevant green spaces – and even lay out the laws with all legally-required public notice information.

The ‘new look’ signage has been funded in part with a grant of £3,090 from Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council’s Parish and Community Initiative Fund (PCIF).

Martin Cartwright, the Borough Council’s Executive Member for Rural Affairs, met Parish Council Chairman, Coun. Danny Findlay, and Parish Councillor, Paul Williams, to see one of the first signs installed inside of the Britannia Road Recreation Ground.

The signs include Parish Council contact information, an explanation of anti-social behaviour controls in place, advice on areas where dogs are not allowed, and a reminder to dog owners that it is a legal requirement for them to clean up after their pets.

They also highlight special features, wildlife designations, activity spaces and equipment available.

Coun. Findlay said: “We welcome the contribution from the PCIF which has enabled the Parish to replace its complete signage in a single year.

“We have worked hard to ensure that the new signs are more welcoming, informative and reflect the community pride in our open spaces.”
