Once volunteers are trained it is hoped they will adopt one (or more) signposts for a period of 3 years.
Some of the signs may be outside of the team’s scope (too fast/busy road) and then a volunteer will be asked to keep a watching brief and report any problems back to the National Park or Highways Authority to arrange works.
To give an idea of the scale of the task, and what is in our parish, a map of the posts can be seen here .
Volunteers will be asked to make at least one report a year. Trained volunteers will be invited to social events for Exmoor National Park volunteers and there will be an email support group for the Historic Signpost Volunteers through which volunteers can request another air of hands to help to work on a sign (to avoid loan working) or to share resources such as tools or paint.
