Newhaven Town Council launch Poppy Trail…

The Sussex Sign Company had the privilege of working with Jenny Flood, Project Officer, from the Newhaven Town Council, on a heritage project that took months of planning.

The interpretation panels are around the town as part of the Council’s Heritage Lottery funded project ‘Newhaven’s First World War’. During the First World War, Newhaven became one of the major supply ports to the Western Front. The number of soldiers at the Garrison increased to over 4,000, the Boys’ School (Hillcrest Centre) was converted into a Military Hospital and a Seaplane Station was built on the beach between the East Pier and Tide Mills.

The lecterns are Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) Mounted Duralite weatherproof and vandal resistant full colour digital panel size A1. These were fitted at a 45degree angle to a double legged zinc plated mild steel lecturn powder coated to a RAL colour and they were fitted all across the Newhaven Poppy Trail, a total of six signs were fitted in total.

Lecterns are perhaps the most used structures for interpretive panels. The Sussex Sign Company manufacture interpretive lecterns in many different materials such as Stainless Steel, Galvanized Steel and Powder coated mild steel.

Many of these are made to specific designs and incorporate routing and sandblasting.

As well as stainless steel and galvanized steel we supply powder coated steel and aluminium in our metal range. We manufacture many different designs as well as our standard classic shape.

The Sussex Sign Company can work with you or your design team right across East and West Sussex including Heathfield, Crowbourough and Uckfield. Call us today on 01273 417057
