I'm Nicholas Whitehead, the founder of Llandegley International Airport. For 20 years, I've been funding the famous sign on the A44 near Crossgates in Radnorshire. In that time, the airport has become firmly established in the hearts and minds of locals and visitors alike. The sign is regarded as part of our heritage. So now it's established, it makes sense for the establishment to take it on. Until November 2022, the sign lived on an advertising billboard but now we think it's time to go 'legit' and get this thing officially recognised. We will ask CADW, Powys County Council and the Welsh Government to sort out the bureaucracy and authorise the erection of a proper sign for the airport. But in these times of austerity and cut-backs we will not be asking them to pay for it. That's wher
e you come in.
The UK Government website says it costs about £8,000 to erect a sign on a roadside verge. So that's what we're asking for. Let's give our favourite airport the sign it deserves.
