IT’S probably a fair bet that the people behind the recent alteration to the Hamilton Show sign were not expressing a distaste for salad.
The change to the Upper Derwent Valley landmark was made a couple of weeks ago and no-one is known to have claimed responsibility. The top section of the painted-rock sign has been changed from “HAMILTON SHOW” to read “NO GREENS”. The lower section still carries the date of this year’s show.
This is thought to be only the second defacing of the sign since it was built on the hillside facing the Lyell Highway in 1961.
