Signs reflect area’s history and culture

The new welcome signs in Dhurringile.

Dhurringile recently welcomed two new town entry signs to reflect its history and culture.

The community, including local primary school students, came together to develop ideas and concepts to inspire the design.

The design includes an emu to represent Dhurringile.

It also includes the colour blue for the local primary school, which celebrated its 100th anniversary last year and the mansion silhouette to celebrate the famous historic mansion built in the area in 1877.

Dhurringile Community Action Group secretary Rachel Smith is positive about the new addition.

‘‘I think they’re lovely, but I think they should’ve been located on Murchison-Tatura Rd for more exposure,’’ Ms Smith said.

Dhurringile Primary School president Jodie Brisbane was involved in the project and says the process was quite easy.

‘‘The signs stand out well and the feedback has been positive,’’ Ms Brisbane said.

‘‘We all had great ideas and making choices for the signs were really easy.’’
