New noticeboards

February 16, 2023

Three men and a board – or two….

Some of our members have told aboutDereham there are not enough noticeboards in the town. If you look at the noticeboard outside the P.O., it is well used – so there is definitely a demand for places to display posters and announcements. The trouble is, this board and other open access boards are usually wood backed and it is impossible to push a drawing pin into the hard wood surface.

Now our struggles are over! We now have three new noticeboards covered with a grey rubber material which takes a drawing pin and is self-healing. The rubber is also weather-proof, so now we can display our posters and notices with ease in three new locations. These are:

With grateful thanks to Men’s Shedders Kevin and Howard and aboutDereham’s Robert who installed the two new boards at the windmill and the Co-op. The new boards have a five year guarantee and are maintenance free, apart from tidying up the notices as needed.

This is another wonderful example of collaboration, support and partnership working between aboutDereham, Dereham Men’s Shed and Dereham Windmill.
