FRENSHAM UNVEILS A TRADITIONAL FINGERPOST

At the invitation of Frensham Parish Council, Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner and local resident, David Munro, recently unveiled a new directional fingerpost in Frensham at the junction of Bacon Lane and the A287, near St Mary’s School.  The metal post, which is of traditional design with four arms and a finial identifying it as being in the parish was created by blacksmith John Cooksley of The Old Forge at the nearby Rural Life Centre.  The sign, which replaces a former one that had rusted away, was funded jointly by Frensham Parish Council and Surrey County Council.  In introducing David Munro, parish council chairman Dick Beales explained that this was another community project benefitting from local enterprise that helped to maintain the rural ambience of the parish.  Pictured from left to right are:  David Harmer, Surrey County Councillor; Guy Olden, Project Manager; Kate Shipton, Parish Clerk; and John Cooksley and David Munro.
