New Signs From The Ba?

Recommended Posts

It is a fact that the Authority has announced plans for new signs costing thousands of pounds in the coming year.

In an attempt to become more 'local' a new style of speed control sign has been approved. Will 'furriners' understand it or do only locals speed?

Please don't encourage the BA... can you imagine the toll rises next year if they have to replace every sign... (and pay the most expensive tender to do it).

... and any new signs will have to be much bigger to get "...member of the national parks family" across the bottom!

If only.  The new signs won't of course say that though will they?  Nope, on present form they will proudly display to the world -  'National Park' and conveniently omit       'A member of'     or     'It's not really a National Park'    or      'We were just kidding'     or    'If we call it a National Park, I'll get my knighthood'      twoguns

I can see 'B.A' having a regular stock of large thick black permanent markers onboard at the ready, or better still some thick black aerosol under-seal :naughty:

In order to reduce costs the Broads Authority are removing the Reedham Ferry, so they are now erecting new signs on each side of the river.

Surely that should say "Caution, Ramp Ahead, you are about to leave the Broads National Park" :naughty:

I can see new signs at Mutford Lock & Gt Yarmouth for incoming boats:

Welcome to the mythical Broads National Park, please find suitable moorings before entering.

Now that gives me an idea. Calling all comedians....

I'm not sure about proposals for 2018, I suspect that we are in for a raft of new ones for 2017, all proposed and seconded long ago by a committee of one.

Realistically we can expect new signs for 2017  saying things like 'Caution, mooring reduction in progress' or 'Caution, litter mountain ahead'!

Perhaps souvenir shops could sell suitable overlays to go on the new signs?
