Community group angered by vandalism at local beauty spot

Potentially irreperable
A local community group has expressed their anger after a bench at a village beauty spot, that had been paid for and provided by their members, was vandalised.

Friends of Thringstone, a nationally lauded community group, had installed the bench at the entrance to 'Bob's Closs', close to the nearby village green.

Sadly at some point between Monday lunchtime and Tuesday morning potentially irreparable damage was caused to the piece of street furniture.

Damaged bench
Chairman of Friends of Thringstone, Nita Pearson, said that she was "absolutely fuming" and that the matter had been reported to the police.

Friends of Thringstone is a group who carry out voluntary work for the enjoyment of all village residents. It is hugely disappointing for them when a thoughtless few cause damage to the detriment of ordinary villagers and those committed to making Thringstone a better place to live.

If you are able to assist with  repairs or replacement of this damaged bench then please contact Friends of Thringstone through their website.
