Sign that spoils

I WRITE regarding the horrendous sign which has just been erected outside the Recreation Hall in Wigginton.

The scale, colouring ( yellow and black) is in my opinion totally out of keeping with the look and feel of the main village street in Wigginton.

It beggars belief that the hall committee could even contemplate erecting a sign such as this when there are three perfectly readable and prominent signs on the hall itself. Or that the planning committee at City of York Council could ever have passed this abominable piece of street architecture.

I know from experience that planning have been quite pedantic with regard to other constructions allowed on the main street, so I find it hard to believe that this has been allowed.

I long for the day this is the kind of trivial rubbish that most occupies my mind. Well done on reaching the panacea Richard.

I totally agree, Richard, the sign is an eye-sore. It looks like a cross between a child's drawing of a pub sign and a speed camera. Amazing how that was passed when some other plans have been rejected.
