A new stone marker has been created to welcome visitors to a South Shields estate.
The feature has been placed at the John Reid Road junction with Dykelands Way – the gateway to South Shields’s Broseley estate.
The inscribed sculpture was created thanks to a £6,000 grant from the Jarrow and Boldon Community Area Forum, to the delight of local Bede ward members, Coun Fay Cunningham, Coun Arthur Meeks and Coun Margaret Peacock.
Coun Meeks said: “The welcome feature came about after we received requests from local residents for a feature to be put up at the entrance to their estate.
“This wonderful new sign is a lovely addition to the area. It not only welcomes visitors to the estate, but gives the community a sense of identity and pride.
“It also serves as a reminder for people to drive carefully on the estate. We were really pleased to be able to support the residents with their request and we hope that they like it.”
