The original sign was designed by Philip Jordan, an architect
who was living in Trumpington at the time, and made by
Stephen Harris, a resident in nearby Shelford Road. The
fundraising for the sign was led by Councillor Betty Suckling.
The village sign is located at the corner of Trumpington High Street and Maris Lane, facing
towards traffic, cyclists and pedestrians coming into Trumpington from the south. The sign
reflects pride in the local community and provides a symbol for the village.
The new sign was designed by Sheila Betts, also a local
resident, and manufactured by Sign of the Times. The project
was led by Antony Pemberton.
