A new sign has been unveiled at a community pub which continues to make progress.
The Fox Inn at Garboldisham, near Diss, had stood empty for nine years before it was saved by the community last October.
Although renovation works are still taking place, the pub is thriving.
The latest addition is a new hanging sign stood at the front of the Grade-II listed building.
It is based on one of the old Morgans signs which had hung outside the pub many years ago and shows a fox in the snow.

As the original image was too small Lynne Smith, who is part of the Garboldisham Fox Community Interest Company, had to draw the design which was then mounted by Dissigns of Stuston.
Breckland Council leader William Nunn unveiled the sign on October 28.

Peter Smith director of the community group said: “We are pleased to play homage to these traditional signs albeit with a more up to date twist. “It’s starting to look like a more traditional pub now and it was also appropriate that William Nunn should officiate in hanging the sign as we have had lots of support from Breckland Council.”
Aluminium lettering with the pub’s name has also been added to the building - Lacons Brewery helped with financial support.
And a third sign will be added, and old Adnams one which has been restored by Dissigns, when a lime render coat has been completed on the building.
