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 original village sign at the junction of the High Street and Maris Lane, September 2007.
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.
