Wanstead’s new ‘village’ signs – the cost

Gradually Wanstead’s new ‘village’ signs are being noticed, with some people alarmed that Wanstead seems to be officially a village. In fact the Wanstead Village Conservation Area status dates back to 1970.

And now the Wanstead Guardian has revealed the cost of the two wooden signs: £7,000.

@lucretiaborgia1 They have made Wanstead a village. A FUCKING VILLAGE. There’s a sign to say so in the High Street and everything……

And I am also concerned that after years of avoiding going to the village, God may have brought the village to the girl.

I am worried that I am now, officially, one of the Village People? Am I?
