Millennium benches restored

The new Millennium bench in situ

In January's icy weather, both ‘Millennium’ benches on the A34 opposite Astbury village green were damaged — one beyond repair — and the telephone box lost a pane of glass.

The phone box's lost glass had already been replaced and the less-damaged bench repaired (by E Beech Joinery) and on Tuesday the replacement for the second bench (by Brown's Furniture).  These two local companies have made excellent work of restoring the benches to their former glory.
