Harwich and Manningtree Standard: New welcome sign depicts history of the town New welcome sign depicts history of the town

A STRIKING new sign welcoming visitors and residents to Manningtree has been put up.

Several designs were entered into a competition which was won by Sue Hammick and has a number of panels depicting life in the town throughout history.

It now takes pride of place on The Walls, three years after it was initially proposed.

Manningtree mayor Kerry King, who has been leading the project since it began, said: “We have had lots of positive comments and feedback from people who really feel it represents the historical values and characteristic features of the town of the town.

“Lots of people have already stopped to admire and praise the end result.”
