A bright new sign has been erected by the new bus interchange at The Wharf to welcome visitors to Newbury.
Leader of Newbury Town Council, Cllr Martin Colston said, “This colourful sign demonstrates our commitment to work with partners to make Newbury’s “arrival points” impressive for visitors. It shows the Councils welcome for visitors to the Town and our pride in what Newbury has to offer.”
The artwork for the sign, which depicts a scene from Victoria Park, was based on a photograph by Tina Panting and was created by graphic artist Louis Durrant who grew up in Newbury.
The strap-line on the sign, “The Crossroads of Southern England” was lifted from the Town Plan approved last year by the Town Council. The Town Council and West Berkshire District Council worked together on the project, with the Town Council paying for the sign and the District Council providing the site and installation costs.
