After a thorough inspection, the damage looks like it was due to wear, tear and decay. After all, it has been there for over 30 years and has lasted through several stop-gap repairs to keep it going. The inspection determined that it is now beyond economic repair.
A new noticeboard has therefore been purchased and installation will hopefully be later on in November. The main criteria in selection were appearance, cost, durability and low-maintenance – so we’ve opted for one with a steel and aluminium construction.
The new one will be of a similar size to the old one with the left-hand side available for public use as before. It will also be in a similar green colour and in a similar positio. The main difference will be in the method of attaching notices - which will be via magnets as currently appears to be the trend. A supply of spare magnets will be left on the board for public use.
