When the Ancestors of SIG SIGNS proprietor Graham Woods scratched a living from the land in the “Leets Vale” district near Wisemans Ferry shortly after arriving in the colony in 1802, it was the start of a lineage associated with the Hawkesbury district that would carry on through to the present. Grahams kind contribution to the Memorial project has allowed him the opportunity to re-kindle connections with family forebears along with other district pioneers.

Local, Greg Thorn volunteered his time and equipment to erect the signage.

This project could not proceed without such Community support.

200 tonnes of V.E.N.M. to spread and compact within a specified area was undertaken by (once again) Peter Woodbury of “U-DO-IT Excavations” operating the Excavator and local Shane Black from Singleton Road on the Bobcat.

Wisemans Ferry contacted us stating that he has a service that may be of use to the Memorial project, the committee didn’t realise at the time just how great an asset this bloke was.
