ON THE MAP: Moruya Chamber of Commerce vice-president Tubby Harrison, president Graham Scobie and Eurobodalla Shire Council road and recreation director Warren Sharpe with the Moruya sign.Moruya is back on the map, thanks to two official town signs installed last week.
Following months of discussion within the town’s Chamber of Commerce, the two damaged signs were slapped with a fresh coat of paint, bent back into shape and now welcome visitors at each end of town.
Moruya Chamber of Commerce president Graham Scobie said Moruya had been without a town sign for too long.
“Moruya has always been a town with a soul but in recent times it has been a town without a name,” he said.
A car crashed into one of the signs a few years ago, and the other sign blew over in a storm earlier this year.
Mr Scobie said people approaching from both the north and the south might not have known what town they were entering.
Both signs were repainted and the damaged one had to be bent back into shape. Mr Scobie said Eurobodalla Shire Council installed the signs last week.
Chamber members discussed whether to incorporate the Sydney Harbour Bridge into the sign, noting how Moruya is the home of the international icon’s granite.
However, Mr Scobie said there’s room to add extra messages if that decision is made.
“There has been a lot of discussion about that but we haven’t decided yet,” Mr Scobie said.
“There’s a little bit of space at the bottom of the sign we can enter something in the future if we choose to.”
