The weathervane is back at the entrance to Wyndham Park.

A weathervane which was broken and damaged in bad weather has been restored to its position on the gatehouse of 
Wyndham Park.

Local businessman and former Forces man Dean Ward paid for the repairs to the weathervane which were carried out by Roll and Scroll, of Inner Street.

The company paid for half the repairs. Dean said: “It’s awesome. It’s back where it belongs. It’s just a shame the maker could not see it reinstalled. Let’s hope it stays up there for 50 years.”

The weathervane was made by George Musson, who died earlier this year. It was first installed on the gatehouse in 1990. The weathervane is a memorial to those who fought in the First World War.

Wyndham Park celebrates its 90th year this year and there will be a day of celebrations and activites in the park on July 27.
