Railway sign to come home
A piece of memorabilia from Cavendish’s former railway is to return to the village.
The last railway sign for the village, removed in 1966 as the line was prepared for closure, is to be returned by the son of the man who it was gifted to.
In 1966 the sign was given to Mike Godfrey, the then village policeman. His son, Paddy Godfrey, from Sutton Coldfield, is to return the restored sign at a ceremony at The Bull Inn in Cavendish on October 30, from 7.30pm.
The sign will be received in a ceremony by Cavendish Local History Society and Cavendish Community Council, before being placed in Cavendish Memorial Hall.
