Alios Delectare Iuvat

Alios Delectare Iuvat is the motto of Hunstanton and means something along the lines of “it is our pleasure to please others”

I saw this written on the coat of arms that is part of the Hunstanton village sign. The sign is a wooden and (I think) metal (it’s hard to tell) double sided sign standing on the green, in the middle of the village, looking out to sea. I’m not sure who is on the sign and whether their four legged friend is supposed to be a dog or a donkey…

Possibly the sign makers were getting tired after completing the front (left, below) since on the back (right, below) his legs and those of the dog/donkey are a little wonky :)
