Interpretation board cleaned by Town Council
Your webmaster was walking past Milford’s interpretation board – the one on the Triangle – and noticed how mucky it had become. What could we do to get a new board or at least try and get the current one cleaned? Well, it’s good news… the Webmaster contacted Belper Town Council to find out if they were responsible for the boards and, although they aren’t, they still sent out a team to give them a good clean. And a great job they did, too. Thank you, Belper Town Council!

As you’ll see from the photo, it’s on the side of the main road opposite all the housing. Previously it was near to the school at the bottom of Sunny Hill. As one resident remarked: ‘It’s probably bureaucracy at work as I suspect it was easier to dig up a grass verge than a tarmac pavement.’
