Sign honours pioneer

CRAWFORD Park at Alstonville now has something new that's something old.

It's a new sign at Crawford Park commemorating early settler William Crawford and where he selected land.

But rather than being made from some shiny modern material, it's a wooden sign.

Wording on the sign has been routed, with the work done by Alstonville man Les Daley.

He is a former Ballina Shire Council employee, and making routed signs was part of his job.

Les said he retains a preference for the old-fashioned style of sign, which he says are easier to read.

PART OF HISTORY: Les Daley and Dorothy Crawford at the new sign at Crawford Park, Alstonville. William Crawford was Dorothy’s grandfather.
