ARTWORK from Sidmouth town entry signs can be used to help mark a Masonic landmark after civic leaders gave their blessing to the bid.

Town councillors received a request from a member of the Masonic Lodge of Perseverance No.164, Sidmouth, to use the artwork on a banner being commissioned to celebrate its bicentenary in 2013.

Councillors gave the move the go-ahead and the banner will be made for the Lodge to mark its long association with Sidmouth- where meetings commenced in 1828.

“It’s quite a compliment,” said Councillor Graham Liverton.

Original artist Derek Brooks had no objection to his work being used.
