Shopkeeper apologises for 'cheeky' sign

A SHOPKEEPER who put up an unlawful sign directing people to her street has apologised.

A SHOPKEEPER who put up an unlawful sign directing people to her street has apologised.

Gillian Nahum, who owns nautical gift shop Boatique in Friday Street, Henley, placed an extra arrow on a fingerpost on the corner of Duke Street and Friday Street.

The sign was the same shade of green as the rest of the signs on the post, which is maintained by the town council.

The council removed the sign when it found out.

Mrs Nahum, who is a director of the Henley Business Partnership, apologised at a meeting of the council’s town and community committee for not seeking permission.

She said: “I wish to apologise for my improvements to the sign but it made a difference to the footfall down Friday Street.

“You might not have seen my sign because it was so discreet. I think it was an improvement on A-boards.

“I know there is some controversy because I did not ask permission. It was cheeky but that is what I am.”

Mrs Nahum, who also runs Henley Sales and Charter in Friday Street, has previously complained about the lack of promotion of Friday Street to visitors.
