Visitors to Berrynarbor will now be greeted by striking new custom made signs as they enter the village.

Three wrought iron signs have been put up at each entrance to the village in a £4,000 project led by Berrynarbor Parish Council but funded by grants at very little cost to parishioners.

County Councillor Andrea Davis contributed £2,000 from her Devon County Council Locality Fund, the AONB contributed £1,726.37 in grant funding.

Parish chairman Councillor Adam Stanbury donated the stone for the planter and Mr and Mrs Richards contributed £300 for the creation of the stone planter, which was planted by Berry in Bloom.

The signs were created by Paul Candy of North Devon Wrought Iron Design, A&B Contractors installed the signs, Berry Arboriculture built the stone planter, Really Red made the AONB signs and the parish council would like to thank three private landowners who have allowed us to install the signs on their land.

The design was created by Gemma Bacon using elements from a flag competition by Berrynarbor Primary School children and the project was organised by Sian Barten.
