Keose Glebe Noticeboard

The work on the village noticeboard has taken a step forward with the arrival of the centrepiece signage, and the creation of a flowerbed around its base.

Additional information panels and services will be installed soon.

Thanks to Stuart at Graphite Signs for the excellent signage; to Angus Macdonald for the stonework; and to Donna Graysmith for the plants and planting.
