The Stag Sign designers visit to the sign makers.

The Stag Play Park Designers see their sign made. 

On Thursday 17th July, the winners of the Stag Park sign competition went to visit Malcolm Lane and Sons, the sign makers engaged by the Kimberley Town council to make the Stag Play Park sign.  

David Entwhistle, from Malcolm Lane,  took the children around the factory and showed them the stages signs go through from design to finished article.

They looked at their own sign - in its various stages, although it  still awaits painting. They met the artist who had shaped it in wax before it was cast in metal and the painter who will hand paint all the detail in the finished sign. 

The sign is due to be installed during August or September.
