The idea for a village sign was mooted as early as 1998. A lot of research and consultation was done. The Berkshire Woodcarvers, local group of talented carvers, had already made an impression with the sculptures in Clayfield Copse. With the exhibition and book behind us, we had a wealth of contacts and photos on which to base the sign. Paul Gallagher did a number of sketches and invited members to vote on the location of the sign. A number of local groups were invited to have a plaque on the sign. An unveiling ceremony took place in September 2003.
