Fritton Village showcases new sign

Villagers in Fritton have proudly unveiled a new sign thanks to a generous grant.
Artist Fiona Davies was commissioned by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism Business Improvement Area (GYTABIA) to provide a new fibreglass sign after years of weather exposure left the original one beyond repair.
With £4,000 available Ms Davies has created a sign that mirrors the carvings found on the original, which was erected close to St Edmunds Church in 1986.
It depicts the historical church, military associations and the wildfowling husbandry carried out on the lake at Fritton Decoy during medieval times.
The sign, which has been installed opposite the village hall, took six weeks to complete using acrylic paint with a car lacquer to give added protection from weathering.
