School pupils have helped design a street sign that they hope will reduce town centre clutter while promoting Stamford’s independent businesses.

Stamford Town Team commissioned Stamford School pupils to design a new sign that could advertise all the businesses in Cheyne Lane. The request was part of a project to reduce the number of A-boards in the town centre. Town centre clutter has been a contentious issue for some time in Stamford, and the town team asked pupils to come up with a design that would please both retailers and pedestrians.

The solution, a lightweight sign with space for multiple businesses to advertise, has now been produced and was first introduced to the High Street on Friday last week.

The frame is light enough so any retailer can move it, and uses innovative “swinging” signs on hooks to ensure it doesn’t blow over in the wind.

Town team chairman Tim Lee said: “The pupils have done a great job.”
