Display boards have been installed around Twyford, marking the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and giving information about the local area.
Three A1 size boards were unveiled thanks to work by Twyford Village Partnership (TVP) after months of fundraising and negotiations with councillors and landlords.
Project leader Sue Goddard said: “I want to give a very big thank you to all who have helped bring this project to fruition.”
The Twyford Mill board at Weavers Way explains the history of mills in the village and the role played by the River Loddon and Broadwater.
The Bell Corner board, headed Welcome to Twyford, describes the coaching inns along the Old Bath Road, complete with a hand-painted pictorial map of the village.
The board on Jubilee Corner is TVP’s commemoration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and explains a planting scheme being introduced by volunteers.
Mrs Goddard said: “The board is aimed particularly at children and illustrates in full colour how even the smallest of gardens can be planted to attract bees and butterflies.”
