A PROJECT to put a ring of stones on Smarts Green roundabout in Chipping Sodbury has finally been completed.
Stones donated by aggregates firm Hanson were moved onto the roundabout a few months ago.
Now local businessman Jim Fannon and his son, James, (pictured) have put the stones into position and the next step will be to plant bulbs to provide some spring colour.
Quarrying has played a major role in the area for many years and the Sodbury in Bloom team felt it appropriate to have a ring of stones in a prominent location to remind people of the connection.
Group member Julia Bernau said: “It has taken some time to move the stones into their final positions but we hope the circle will become a landmark feature to be enjoyed by everyone for many years to come, perhaps as long as Stonehenge.”
