Redbridge Council to replace all our ageing lamppost signs, most of which are damaged, faded or just missing. As you can see they no longer bear the Met Police Logo, but most importantly they do bear the London Borough of Redbridge logo; they paid for them. So, hopefully they will feel obliged not to throw them away when they replace lampposts.
Delivery of the first batch of signs has been received centrally and the roll out has begun, based around electoral wards. Not every ward has a ward coordinator yet, but where they exist it is they who have audited the street sign situation with the help of their watch coordinators, and are dishing them out to the watch coordinators to be fitted. They have LB of Redbridge permission to fit them to lampposts and they are insured through the National Neighbourhood Watch body.
Here’s a picture of some of the Ward Coordinators at a gathering in Barkingside Police Station.
