we have long been trying to give out information as part of our “Kissamos Clean Beaches” programme. A couple of years ago we hand painted some wooden information signs for the different beaches, and last year we talked about making more, and more ‘professional’ looking, metal signs to add to the beaches with some relevant guidelines. Things like ‘use the bins’, ‘don’t drive on the beach’, ‘there are sea turtles nesting here’.
So as a project to do after the carnival but before the summer season, we could go ahead with this. I am going to get some material this week before the carnival (some of you will understand why), then actually make the signs later.
I am starting this topic now so we can add information here as we go.
There’s a place in Kissamos that can print this kind of stuff, the cost is about 40€/m2. Our idea is to make 4-6 signs, 80 x 120 cm in size, big to be visible. So the budget for 6 signs should be about 250€. We have also thought about making rounded, cylindrical signs or triangular shaped ones, though we haven’t studied their feasibility and potential cost in depth!
The good news is that we should only be paying for the printed material.
Comments, ideas, suggestions always welcome.
