Several years ago, a student at the Deepings School won a competition to design a Deeping Gate village sign, this to be erected on the river bank at the foot of our stone bridge. The sign was duly made and installed but the ravages of time, and the elements, had not been kind to its structure and we needed a replacement.
We are delighted to say that Matthew Sergeant, previously of Deeping Gate, rose to the challenge. He hand-crafted a beautiful double- sided sign, identical in every way to the original design. Many thanks to Matthew for the amazing reproduction, now in situ.
