AN EXTRA special welcome now awaits visitors to Flore with the unveiling of a set of new stone signs.

The welcome signs, carved entirely of stone, have been installed either side of the village.

The £14,000 project was organised by Flore Parish Council to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Johnny Amos, one of the parish councillors, said: “The amount of emails the clerk has had from other councils wanting to know where we got the work done has been incredible.

“A huge thank you to Boden and Ward for carrying out the work which we are all very pleased with.”

Further work will be carried since winning permission to put the Queen’s royal cipher on the new signs.

Cllr Amos said: “We are very excited to be marking the Diamond Jubilee with these signs and delighted to get permission to use the cipher. They should be completely finished soon.”
