A project created by Aby Parish Council has seen the erection of two new signs for either end of the village.

The signs were made by David Evans of Metal Hanging Signs, based in Northern Wales, from a collaborative design between David and Pamela Darby of the Parish Council.

They were put in place by Andy Thorndyke and his team from Focus Signs in Louth.

The signs recognise the agricultural nature of the land surrounding Aby.

It also references to the old railway that once ran along the village boundary.

A tribute to the former blacksmith, Eric Marfleet, who served the agricultural community for many years, is also included in the signs.

A discretionary grant from local councillor, Hugo Marfleet (no relation to Eric) together with village funds has made this project possible. Pictured gathered at one of the two new signs are members of the Parish Council and the Village Hall Committee.
