We recently found out that sadly Norwich City Council doesn’t restore our historic road signs. If you report one using their online form they just put up a plastic new road sign near it! Leaving the metal road sign to eventually rust and fall to the ground.
We love the old road signs feel like they are important to keep in Norwich. As a community, we have been working on the ones in Pockthorpe, NR3. We have been sanding away the rust and giving them a fresh coat of paint.
If you want to get involved or notice a road sign that needs restoring please comment on this blog post. You are welcome to borrow the paint!
