A GROUP of villagers from Woodcutts have renovated their fingerpost sign after adopting it from the council.

Pearl James, raised £350 from local residents for the signpost that had fallen into disrepair over the years and, with help of a £400 grant from Cranborne Chase AONB, they repaired it.

She is now hoping to raise awareness of the fact that people can adopt fingerposts from the council.

Mrs James said: “I am delighted with how our signpost looks after all the hard work we put into it.

“I hope that people see our beautiful fingerpost and decide to do the same.”
