In case anyone gets fed up with mince pies and Christmas TV we’ve got a bit of a challenge for all our members and friends. Can you tell what these two baby plaques signify? They are high on the wall of the sandwich bar at the beginning of the cul-de-sac that leads down to the SoG.
We’ve never noticed them before but they are fairly high up and we could be very unobservant!!
How long have they been here? What are they and do they have any meaning?
There is no prize and the answers won’t be published – because we just don”t know. But if anyone has a clue do feel free to let us know, because it has us stumped!!
