Where did 'Please Dance' come from?
When you enter a town or village, do you ever look at the road sign? If you do you’ll be familiar with the usual sign saying “Please Drive Carefully” or if you’re unlucky, “Please Die Carefully”. In Castle Carrock, we’re a bit more creative and friendly to travellers. We say simply 'Please Dance'.
A woman, traveling through Castle Carrock, contacted us shortly after the new sign appeared. After being upset about a road closure, she was diverted via the village - upon seeing the signs she felt much happier and wanted to know what they meant.
The timing of the modified signs mysteriously coincided with the local music festival Music on the Marr. Although people have their suspicions, no one really knows who made the signs so bright and friendly. Whoever it was is due congratulations - after all it is now the talk of the village and beyond !
In 2012, the official t-shirt to Music on the Marr had the sign emblazoned across the chest. Many of the locals agree that this was the best t-shirt the festival has ever had !
So - please dance.
