The new refurbishment was arranged by Cllr Dennis Ball and artist Fiona Davies restored the sign.

Carved out of wood, the colourful sign has a wealth of detail on it including seagulls, fishing boats, birds, flowers and a rural scene showing two churches.

The sign was first put up to celebrate the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. Since then it has been restored a number of times.
