A LOCAL business is helping fly the flag for the forthcoming New Mills Community Festival.

Last September, a new festival banner went missing from above Barton’s Hardware shop. Organisers made every effort to locate its whereabouts, but to no avail.

As the Festival was unable to afford a replacement this year, Bob Kerr at Stick ‘Em Signs has come to the festival’s rescue. About to test out his newly-refurbished, upgraded commercial ink-jet printer, he kindly offered to create a free replacement banner as his first trial run.

Festival chairman Ian Mason said: “Local businesses like Stick ‘Em Signs give invaluable support to our community festival.”
