The Burwash village sign has been restored to pride of place in the High Street after work to replace the post. A big thank you to Andy Vater and Steve Payne who handled the reinstallation of our iconic sign.
And also to Rod Seymour who took away the old post when it was beginning to lean over. The new post was set in concrete by Burwash Parish Council handyman Laurence Worton and flowers around the base were planted by Judy Malling of Pope’s Cottage Antiques.
The three heraldic shields at the top of the sign have been repainted by local Burwash potter Mary Clarke while Lee Dalton undertook the “dubbing” of the wrought iron work to spruce it up.
The three shields represent the County of Sussex and two ancient families – Burghurst and Pelham – long associated with Burwash.
Burwash Parish Council underwrote the costs of the project which was supervised by Councillor Steve Moore.
