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.
