Hanoosh: Hi

As the publishing of caches has now commenced in England, Scotland and Wales the UK Reviewers have decided it is time to commence the background work of dealing with caches that have been disabled for two months or more or are in need of maintenance.

We appreciate that some cachers are still "shielding" due to COVID-19 or do not feel safe to go out and are unable to maintain their caches at the moment. If this is the case can you add a note to the cache page indicating you intend to maintain your cache at a later date. We do not require you to give specific reasons why you cannot maintain your cache at this present time.

This cache appears to have not been found for some time. Would the owner please check this cache and see if it still in place or give an indication of when it may be sorted out. Otherwise it should be archived. If there is no response to this log after 30 days I will archive the cache. In the meantime I am disabling it.

Guidelines:

  • You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to ensure it is in proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.), or posts a Needs Maintenance log. Temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have addressed the problem. You are permitted a reasonable amount of time – generally up to 4 weeks – in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.

Could the cache owner please place a note on the cache page so that other cachers and I can see what your intentions are.

Please DO NOT send an email about this cache in case I don't receive it. Posting a note will ensure your cache does not get archived in error.

Regards

Brenda

Geocache Description:


Village signs is a series of caches based on the ornate signs that depict the heritage, history and culture of the villages that put them up (normally on the village green!).

The signs can be made of different materials from fibreglass to wood, from forged steel to stone. They can depict anything from local industry to historical events. The tradition probably stated in Norfolk or Suffolk and has now spread across most of the country so we thought we would base a series on them!

The following is taken from Wikipedia.

Hempnall is a village and civil parish in the English county of Norfolk. It covers an area of 14.82 km2 (5.72 sq mi) and had a population of 1,310 in 522 households at the 2001 census,[1] the population reducing to 1,292 at the 2011 Census.[2] For the purposes of local government, it falls within the district of South Norfolk.


Hempnall lies on the B1527 road, with neighbouring villages including Tasburgh and Saxlingham Nethergate.

Facilities in Hempnall include a village hall, playing field, a primary school, and a convenience store. 'The Hempnall Trust', a village charity, runs The Hempnall Mill Centre at the site of Hempnall Mill.

Another addition to The Village Sign series, VS#1557 Hempnall.

A fairly simple traditional cache. It is located in a very busy area so I have provided a very specific hint. So if you want a bit if a challenge I'd advise you not to read the hint before you have a look!  The Village sign is located on a very busy junction so please to take care with children and animals. Parking is available a short walk away near the village shop. Happy Caching!


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.
