Queen Thorne Parish Council


Restored Fingerposts in Trent and Sandford Orcas

Over the past few months Councillor Clive Yendole has been a man on a mission to restore the dilapidated fingerposts of Trent and Sandford Orcas  to their former glory.  Fingerposts are a characteristic feature of the Dorset countryside, but unfortunately the  County Council no longer has a remit to repair them, which is why so many are in such a sorry state.  The Parish Council is very grateful to Cllr Yendole for  volunteering to carry out the renovations across Queen Thorne, meaning that the Parish Council has only had to pay for materials.  If you haven't yet seen the real thing, you can see the fruits of his labour in these pictures of the first five signposts to be renovated..
