“Sign of the Times” Competition

The Ashes has joined forces with the Town Council and the Rotary Club of Howden to improve the approach to the town from the south east at the junction of Hailgate and Treeton Road.

The overgrown piece of land opposite the T junction is to be cleared and a landscaped area created for a new “Welcome to Howden” sign. The competition is open to individuals, schools, clubs and organisations to submit designs for a structure that will impress visitors and locals alike and represent the rich heritage of Howden. There is a prize of £100 for the best submission and the closing date is 31st March 2017. Further information from terry.harford@gmail.com .
