The EVMA Metal Sign Goes Up

The EVMA sign was installed on Saturday 3rd June 2023 at the entrance to the arboretum at Hampshire Farm Meadows.

The impressive looking sign is made of metal, coated with nylon and painted British racing green to match the environment.

The installation was carefully planned by Trustee Guy Schofield, with the vital assistance and expertise of Chris Rosier, a flint wall expert, and Sandy Galloway, a Westbourne Tree Warden.  The ground was incredibly hard and the helpers did sterling work digging the holes.

The meadow was looking its best in full sunshine with numerous wild flowers and grasses blowing in the wind.
