Stunning sign for Woolmer Green, to commemorate both the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
(10th July 2012)
A Hertfordshire County Councillor has provided £1,000 to help Woolmer Green Parish Council build a sign commemorating both the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics.
Cllr Richard Smith (Welwyn) allocated the money from his locality budget in order to provide a permanent reminder of this special year.
The sign will become the centre piece of the village and is to be carved by a nationally renowned artist.
Cllr Smith said: "I am very happy to support this dynamic Parish Council in providing a special village sign which will make people proud of their village in this Diamond Jubilee and Olympic year and will be a permanent reminder to all."
Locality budgets were launched in July 2009, with funding to be used for worthy social, economic or environmental causes in Hertfordshire. A total of £10,000 is available to each of the 77 members of Hertfordshire County Council to spend on worthwhile community projects in their area.
