  1. Lovely Ghost sign, horrible Premier sign. Astonishingly, many councils will allow the Premier sign today but not the Ghost sign! Irrespective of how it looks, many councils wont allow signs to be painted on the upper levels of a shop!.

    • Great idea for the calendar, apart from anything else, it will be so interesting to see a self-edited page full of everyone’s “top 5” photos!
