Museum sign returns thanks to Jonathan’s help
4:20pm Thursday 20th September 2012 in News
A PLAQUE which detailed the history of Knutsford has been replaced by Knutsford Lions thanks largely to the generosity of a Knutsford resident.
The ‘Museum in the Street’ sign at the top of Regent Street disappeared around the time when the Christmas Tree Lights were switched on in 2011.
The sign is one of a series of plaques set up at key points in Knutsford town centre depicting historical images and information.
After a few months of investigations it became apparent a replacement plaque would have to be ordered, at a cost of several hundred pounds.
Knutsford resident Jonathan Farber has helped the Lions to provide a replacement.
Anita Goldman, president of Knutsford and District Lions Club, said: “The original Museum in the Street panels were erected as a millennium project by Knutsford and District Lions.
“They form a town trail, featuring early photographs of Knutsford at their original location, with commentary by the late town historian Joan Leach.
“The panel at the top of Regent Street went missing some months ago. Knutsford and District Lions Club wishes to acknowledge the financial support received from Jonathan Farber of Pressglue in providing a replacement.
“We are delighted the Knutsford Museum in the Street is once again complete.”
