Cleaning up in Old Buckenham

Getting a good wash
At the moment the Old Buckenham village sign is away being repainted. Meanwhile yesterday lunchtime there was activity on the Green to clean up the brick plinth before the sign returns.
Jon Bright, a local chimney sweep, had volunteered to use his power cleaning equipment to bring back some long lost colour to the brickwork. Aided by John Fernihough, who had brought along the necessary supply of water, Jon was soon hard at work and years of grime was disappearing.
Next time you go past, why not look and see how orange the bricks are once more and also stop to read the information on the plaques fixed to the sides.

Thank you to both Jon and John for their hard work.

Advance notice. If you would like to do your bit towards looking after the Green, a litter pick is planned for Saturday 5 May, starting at 10am outside the village shop.
