After time, the Information Boards around the Wellington Statue, commissioned by the Friends, have suffered from the weather. The wooden frames had rotted and there was a build-up of grime behind the Perspex sheets. The signs were in danger of collapsing.
In September 2017, the boards were repositioned on the metal railings around the statue.
Unfortunately, the fixings weren't strong enough to hold the boards. However, the Friends have rescued the boards. Gerry (our Chairman) has made new frames and has fixed them securely to the metal railing around the statue.
