Witham: New welcome to Witham sign needed
1:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
Visitors could have been forgiven for completely missing the Welcome to Witham sign which was supposed to act as a gateway to the town.
The sign in Hatfield Road, Witham, which was created by the 2nd Witham Boys Brigade’ in April, had completely disappeared under long grass.
A picture of the unkempt area, where white stones had spelled out the message, was posted on Facebook by Martin Holmes, of Braintree, who drives past it on his way to and from work.
Witham Town Council has now agreed to cut the grass as a “good will gesture” until a longer term plan is agreed, such as hiring a company to cut the grass.
Town clerk Mark Squire said the initial sign was temporary and there are now plans to commission a permanent replacement.
