A MAN wanted to show pride in where he lives by giving the village’s arrival sign a much-needed renovation.

Kevin Osborne drives past the Darfield welcome plinth on Cathill roundabout every day on his commute to work.

He noticed that the sign, which was placed to commemorate the millennium, was looking worse for wear and decided to take matters into his own hands and update the sign.

“I decided to take a bucket of soapy water and some paint and make the sign look better which should make the area seem a lot more nice.
