A new village sign has been erected at the side of the A6 on the entry to Kibworth Harcourt as a legacy for future generations. The sign has been paid for by villager Betty Ward and depicts notable landmarks. Betty, 90, who has lived in the village all her life, said: "I care very much about Kibworth Harcourt and its traditions. So I wanted to leave a lasting legacy for subsequent generations."The sign was designed and created by Peterborough woodworker Glyn Mould.It features the 17th century Kibworth Windmill, in Langton Road, and the listed Old House, on Main Street, along with the Munt, also known as Kibworth Harcourt Castle, complete with a grazing sheepBelow the village name are two smaller plaques, one depicting the village pump, which stands outside Jubilee Green on Main Street, and the other depicting Betty herself riding her mobility scooter, "Boadicea".Between these two plaques is a crown together with the year 2012.
If anybody would like to expand this series please do. I would just ask that you let Smokeypugs know first so they can keep track of the Village Sign numbers and names to avoid duplication.
