The Society has been having discussions with Southwark Council regarding Dulwich's unique finger post signs, many of which are looking worse for wear. Following the receipt of a grant from this year's Cleaner Greener Safer fund, a prototype of a new sign is being manufactured which should provide a more longer lasting installation than the traditional timber signs. They will look exactly the same but be made of a 'timber effect' recycled material around a steel core. The first sign should be installed on the Dulwich Village/Burbage Road roundabout at the end of January.
In the mean time, this week, the Council has gone around all the existing signs and carried out temporary repairs.
