Green fingers come to the aid of Potholes


A fed-up cyclist in Edinburgh planted a flower bed in a gaping pothole in a bid to speed up road repairs.
The part-time courier filled the biggest one with 35 litres of compost and added a floral display.

New Bus Shelter for Oxford

New Bus Shelter for Oxford

We have recently supplied and erected a new Bus Shelter for Oxford City Council that blends in with the existing styles that they have around the area.

The 5mtr long Bus Shelter has perch seating and bus time table installed inside.
Oxford also decided to have a large poster box on the outside to advertise items of local interest.
The Shelter was installed within 5 weeks of ordering and with the opaque polycarbonate roof allows more light into the shelter and does not show the inevitable traffic film so much that reduces the cleaning intervals required.

The new canopy creates a much lighter environment for passengers to use especially as it is used for access to a subway. It also helps light reach down the steps of the subway maker it safer to use.

B17 Flying Fortress Sunrise Serenader Memorial Stand

B17 Flying Fortress

"Sunrise Serenader" Memorial Stand



 Street Furnishings Limited were selected to design and supply the memorial to the crew of the B17 Flying Fortress ‘Sunrise Serenader’ which crashed in Wargrave, close to our premises, on 13th November 1943.

 9 of the 10 crew were lost when the bomber broke up in mid-air over Shiplake Meadows, the only survivor being Radio Operator T/Sgt Alan B Purdy who parachuted out of the broken fuselage after the tail section broke away. The explosion and crash on 13 November 1943 was witnessed by Jim Waldron from Wargrave and Mary Burge from Shiplake.
Mr Waldron, now 84, said: "It was on a Saturday, I was in the back bedroom and we heard this engine noise but didn't think anything of it.
"Then suddenly there were these loud crashes and bangs - two of the bombs had crashed into River Thames.
"I saw the plane heading towards Henley and then transform into a rolling ball of fire.

"Then the burning aircraft broke in half."
The memorial plaque, designed by Mr Waldron & Street Furnishings. The plaque shows the flight path of the crashing plane over Shiplake and Wargrave, where the bombs were jettisoned, where bits of the plane fell, where the survivor landed and where the nine died.



Maidenhead MP Theresa May unveiled the memorial with eyewitnesses Jim Waldron from Wargrave and Mary Burge from Shiplake



The Memorial has been unveiled by the Rt Hon Theresa May M.P. in the presence of Brig. General Dieter Bareihs, U.S. Defence Attaché on 13th November 2014, 71 years after the crash and will be covered by regional Television, Radio and Press.

General Dieter Bareihs US Defence Attaché with MSgt Donald Grindstaff saluted the memorial.
