A section of an A-board sign that has sentimental value has been stolen from a pub.

Tim Heap, landlord of The Royal Oak, Malborough, is appealing to the public about the whereabouts of the sign, as it was made by “legendary” local, Alan Bickle shortly before he died.

He said it went missing from outside the pub last Friday, November 30 while Lizzie Corish was playing inside.

“It’s really upset me because it’s no use to anyone, and it was one of the last things Alan did before he died three years ago,” Mr Heap said.

“He was born and bred in Malborough. He was a huge personality and a heavily respected man in the village. His funeral was heaving.”

He said the whole sign hasn’t been stolen, just the board, which can slip in and out of the A-frame.

If you have any information about the missing sign, contact Tim Heap at 01548 561481, or email [email protected].
