Christmas Bells - Blandfordia nobilis

The sign welcoming visitors to Hampden Park in Robertson has been restored to its former glory.

Following an extreme storm in late 2007, half of the sign was destroyed. Extreme wind gusts literally tore out two of the metal panels and their perspex covering sheets.

Subsequent vandalism led to the sign being emptied completely. The "empty sign" photo was taken on 28 November 2007.Fortunately the actual information panels were salvaged. Someone valued the perspex, and pinched it, but fortunately, they left the information panels behind. They were taken to safety at the back of the CTC, until they were collected and taken away for restoration.

Anyway, yesterday, Brian Davies (of "Magnetite Window Insulation") came and installed the restored panels, with new Perspex and "Magnetite" fixings.
Apparently this work has been paid for by the Wingecarribee Shire Council, so we express our thanks to them too.

Never let it be said that this Blog does not give credit where credit is due. :-))
Of course, we give them a hard time when deserved, too. But nobody would expect otherwise.
