Hunstanton Village Sign

The Village Sign was presented to the village by the Women’s Institute to mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. It was unveiled on Tuesday 13th September 1977 by the Chairman of the Norfolk Federation of Women’s Institute, Mrs. Jill Scott and blessed by the Reverend Paul Alton, Vicar of St. Mary’s Church, Old Hunstanton.

The Sign shows a man on horseback holding a javelin. When the le Strange family first came to Old Hunstanton they got the sturdiest manto ride the biggest charger and throw a javelin out to sea. The land to the seaward side became the le Strange property. Also shown are Old Hunstanton Hall, the le Strange home, and the crests of thele Strange family and the Women’s Institute. Buried under the sign is a set of today’s coins and a casket containing a record of today’s food prices.

Local craftsman, Mr. Harry Carter of Swaffham made the sign and the plinth, made of Norfolk flints and red brick was made by Mr. Tony Richardson of Old Hunstanton.
